This was done adhering to the provisions of the Official Language Rules, 1976.

BJD leader Pinaki Mishra tweeted his displeasure and said, “We will insist on Odiya being used since our people are familiar with it and that will make their task of availing service at AIIMS easier, we will formally lodge a protest with the Ministry of Health and ask for a change in this directive.”

    Deputy director administration Mr PK Ray should understand that imposition of such terms are not only unacceptable but also impractical. We should keep our eyes open when implementing laws and regulations, which he has failed to do on many occasions. Such a disgraceful order goes against the very basic tenets of our constitution which guarantees equality in diversity.
    I suggest he should accept the blunder committee and resign on moral grounds.
