Report by:Rajesh Mohapatra,Odishabarta


ROURKELA,07/04/18: District Congress Committee has staged protest against both the Govt. the ruling Govt. in State and at Centre against their non-cooperation and inability to provide due governance for the people of Rourkela and its adjacent areas. Rourkela is a multilingual city and also a ‘smart city’ which is being declared by the Centre few years back but still is struggling for some genuine demands. Congress has staged demonstration which is continuing for third day. Senior congress leaders under the leadership of Biren Senapaty, President of District Congress Committee have come in large numbers and sat for demonstration near Bisra Chawk. The demands which they have put forward are, to construct the second bridge on Brhamani which is a long pending demand, IGH to make a super specialty hospital, to construct a barrage on Koel river which was planned before by BJD Govt. and a foundation stone was also laid but nothing happened in between, a cheating by BJD Govt. said, leaders of Congress. Other demands are to make a rail division at Rourkela which is also long sought demand, to make provision of concrete houses for poor and to give employment to Rourkela people on priority basis by the big companies who took big projects from Rourkela Steel Plant towards modernization, i.e. L&T NSPCL. Many leaders of congress while addressing the mass also complaint about the inability of Local MLAs and MP to provide due justice for the people of Rourkela. Dilip Ray, MLA, Rourkela is not doing anything than writing letters to PM and other leaders for second bridge, a complete eyewash and is playing with the sentiments of the people of Rourkela. Central Govt. is doing nothing despite having local MLA and MP in Sundargarh district complained the leaders of Congress. People of Sudergarh have bestowed tremendous faith on these leaders and make them win last election but they failed to deliver which is unfair. They also said, the protest will go strongly hereafter and will not allow any ministers from either Govt. to enter Rourkela, if their demands are not heard and taken for action. Since, demands are genuine, many people who doesn’t belong to any political parties also come forward and supporting the endeavor by the Congress party. Congress party with this protest is also gaining all sympathies. The top congress leaders who have been part of these protest are Rabi Ray, Secretary PCC, Shabbir Hussain, Secretary State Miniority Community, Ramananda Srichandan, PCC member, Raj Kumar Jadav, AICC member, Sarat Padhi, Block secretary, Girija Shankar Mishra, Prasanna Baliar Singh, Hitesh Deuri, Student leader, Prabhat Mohapatra, Ex MLA, Dinabandhu Bhoi, Santosh Tanti,Binod Rout and many other local leaders.
