The permanent building issue of Laxmi Narayan College Jharsuguda has resurfaced. Diffusing the permanent building issue of Laxmi Narayan College Jharsuguda has risen questioned in the public. In the recent past it becomes a political issue after a series of strike, bandh and locking the office. Both the ruling party and opposition party made it political issue and tried for political mileage at that time.
High level meet was called on after local Jharsuguda MLA Naba Kishor Das questioned in the assembly regarding the building. It was a hot topic in the political circle of Jharsuguda for a time.
The old students of the college associated with the ruling party formed a committee. The committee of old students promised to short-out the building issue of the college. BJD leader and present WODC Chairman Kishor Mohanty also promised the students to full fill their demands and requested to call-off the dharna.
Further, local MLA Sri Das also formed a committee with old students of the college associated with his party. The committee was formed to diffuse the building issue of the college.
But the issue has not been resolved yet. The first and oldest college of Jharsugada doesn’t have its own building. The college is running at the hostel of Jharsuguda Technical College.
Higher Education Department has been repeatedly asked to provide land and building for the college. From the office of the joint secretary, B Sethi of Higher Education Department has released a letter to the district collector on dated 8th April regarding it. Further the district collector has asked to the principal of the college regarding the building.
The future of the students in the 46 years old college is in dark. The college is fully aided but yet it has no building. Government should take immediate step to diffuse the issue.
