Although I stay in Navi Mumbai, But I love my Silk City very much. The saddest thing of our city is that the development work is negligible. Govt must push the officials to the limits to get the city in order as it is the commercial city of southern orissa.

Dear Ashish, I think without the combined effort of ‘Berhampurias’ this city can't move forward. Since the formation of Orissa state successive state governments have been showing discrimination and step motherly treatment to Berhampur. Even our own BJD representatives ditched us. During the rule of BJD not a single project was sanctioned for Berhampur. So, expecting some thing from this government is foolish. I think we should join hands with SOSA who are consistently raising their voice for various issues concerning to the people of South Orissa and am sure, combinely we can change the fate of the city.

SOSA urges Mamata to give fair deal to south Orissa

It seeks a host of trains and new railway lines to help develop the region

BERHAMPUR: The South Orissa Students Association (SOSA) has demanded the Union Railway Ministry to provide budgetary provisions for better infrastructure and amenities in south Orissa.
In a letter written to Union Railway Minister Mamata Banarjee, the SOSA has alleged that the railway authorities have till date remained indifferent to problems of and demands of south Orissa.
Major portions of south Orissa are still beyond the reach of railway tracks although it is one of the most underdeveloped areas of the country and railways is always considered a catalyst of development.
The activists of the SOSA felt it was high time for the railways to take steps to fulfil the long-standing demands for some new railway lines and trains in south Orissa.
They also said setting up of some railway manufacturing unit can be a major help for development of this backward region.
The demand for connecting the mineral rich hinterland of south and western Orissa with t Gopalpur port has been a major demand. They also want new railway lines between Talcher-Gopalpur, Gopalpur-Rayagada, Berhampur-Phulbani, Berhampur-Sambalpur, Gunupur-Therubali and Khariar-Nabarangpur- Jeypore. They also felt that there was an urgent need to introduce some new trains besides increasing the frequency of some existing services. There should be direct train link from Berhampur to major destinations in the country. The Sampark Kranti Express, Howarh-Bhubaneswar Jan shatabdi Express should be extended to Berhampur and Ranchi-Bhubaneswar Garib Rath express can be extended to Visakhapatnam for the benefit of south Orissa. These are demands which are yet to be addressed. There is also an urgent need to increase the frequency of Amritsar-Visakhapatnam Express and Puri-Ahmedabad Express. There is also demand for a new Jan Shatabdi Express between Bhubaneswar-Koraput.

Coaching terminal
The SOSA felt there was much to be done for the betterment of Berhampur Railway station. Establishment of a coaching terminal here has been long standing demand which would enable extension of long-distance trains terminating at Bhubaneswar and Visakhapatnam to Berhampur.
The Orissa government has also requested for a coaching terminal at Berhampur.

I am the permanent resident of Berhampur. I love my Berhampur very much. A lot of work is there to develop Berhampur railway. There is no direct connectivity from Berhampur to cities of North India, which affects the Berhampurias as well as the army personnel serving at Gopalpur Cantt. It is the urgent need of the hour to extend the Orissa Sampark Kranti Exp, Rajdhani Express upto Berhampur. I think, that the Utkal Exp should be run from Puri via Berhampur, Vizianagaram, Rayagada, Titlagarh, Bilaspur instead of its present route. The frequency of Puri-Ahmedabad Exp via Rayagada and Hirakund exp should be made daily.

All ministers are very clever,they give rice 20 kg and rs 200 , people will give vote to them no need to do any thing for developments. They are happy because Odisha is no-1 or 2 if some body will count from bottom out of 30. Peoples are very innocent they will stand against industry will arrange very good strike for not to do any industry or developments. All odisha peoples are happy with only one bhubaneswar air port and Paradeep sea port. my god how one dhamara port come to odisha and gopalpur sea port may not develope at Berhampur.
