Naveen demands Tribal University for Kandhamal

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik met the Union Minister for Tribal Affairs Kanti Lal Bhuria in New Delhi and urged him to take steps for setting up a Tribal University in Kandhamal. He asked for an early release of Central assistance for undertaking various tribal welfare activities for which a proposal was submitted by the State Government and the Union Minister acceded to the request of the Chief Minister for grant of Rs 64.26 crore.

Kandhmal being the most backward and tribal dominated district in south orissa, the demand for Tribal University in the District has been going on for quite some time. The demand of the state Chief Minister is likely to fulfill the dream of many people in south orissa to have a University in Kandhamal.
