It will act as a catalyst in development of the region, says struggle committee
The agitation to achieve a railway link to Kandhamal district from Berhampur in Ganjam district will be intensified through democratic means, the Relapatha Sangram Samity of Kandhamal district, which is spearheading the agitation, has said.
As part of its stepped up efforts to achieve its demand, the organisation decided to rope in people of Ganjam district.
organisation has, therefore, been renamed as ‘Relapatha Sangram Samity, Kandhamal-Ganjam’.
The extended organisation held its first meeting in the city on Sunday to chalk out its future plans. It was attended by its president Sriya Kumari Nayak, secretary Subash Chandra Sahu, and social activists from Ganjam and Kandhamnal districts.
They decided to take out a rally in Berhampur on December 6 and hand over a memorandum to the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC), Southern Division, demanding that the railway link between Berhampur in Ganjam and Phulbani in Kandhamal district passing through areas that were yet to have rail connectivity be provided. The organisation also proposed to take out a motorcycle rally from Berhampur to Phulbani to create awareness among people. The rally would pass through the areas in Ganjam and Kandhamal districts that would stand to gain if the demand was conceded.
Former president of Ganjam Bar Association Sudhansu Panda, who attended the meeting, said it was a long-pending demand. He said that in 1977 a proposal had been made for budgetary allocation for survey work.
Members of the organisation said railway connectivity would act as a catalyst in development for regions of both the districts.
People of Kandhamal district hope railway connectivity would give a boost to tourism in region. It would also increase the market for the forest and organic agricultural produce of tribal people and dalits of the district.

Infrastructural Development has only turned out to be a buzzword. Not much is transpiring in reality. The health of the Indian Economy is getting a setback for lack of all round growth. More is allocated to places which already have enough. There is an unnatural imbalance. For a vibrant economy all sectors and all sections need to grow uniformly. The step motherly attitude of the people at the helm must change. The pity is that not much has been done in Odisha even after 65 years of Independence despite enough scope for mining and agriculture. It has been a victim of politics and has turned out to be a forlorn part of the country. I suppose that Guided representation backed by proper economic survey and viability report may become an eye opener to the decision makers. Growth Reduces Resentment.

The Daily Train running between Jammu and Rourkela (T.Nos 18109/18110) may be extended up to Puri for persons who seek pilgrimage and would connect the Himalayan Range and the Sea Coast. It may also serve for deployment of forces at the hour of need.

Right from JAT upto Rourkela, this train is a hara-kiri. Best example of how to mess with route planning & timing.

For a journey of 2100 + 500 Kms average 3 to 4 hours delay is not a big deal; the other benefits as mentioned earlier lay heavily for the small loss. Delays may not be so one day, let's be optimistic.

The Southern part of Odisha is not as densely rail-networked as Rest of India. It is one of the most neglected part of India. If it is meticulously connected from Brahmapur to Raipur via Titlagarh then it can serve to make great inroads into Central India for carriage of goods and passengers, a ventilating access from Central India Region to the Bay Of Bengal, (harbour - Gopalpur Port) and a useful link across the country to the Arabian Sea.
