Kosala State Coordination Committee observes Utkala Dibasa as ‘Black Day’

Bargarh: Alleging state government’s indifferent attitudes towards the people of the Western Odisha, activists of Kosala State Coordination Committee (KSCC) observed the Utkala Dibasa (Odisha Day) as ‘Black Day’ here on Monday.

As a mark of protest, the KSCC members, with black banners and raising anti-Odisha government slogans, marched in a rally across the district headquarter town. Besides, they hoisted a black flag at the Gandhi Chowk of the town.

Later, police arrived at the site and detained the protesters. Besides, they also seized the black flags from the possession of the KSCC activists.

It is worthwhile to mention here that a separate Kosala state on the basis of art, culture and language is one of the many long-standing demands of the Kosala Coordination Committee. 

On the other hand, the Utkala Dibasa is celebrated on 1 April in Odisha in the memory of the formation of the state as a separate province on 1 April 1936.
