All the NH and SH in Kalahandi-Nuapada regions are in bad shape, thanks to Vedanta for making NH201 from bad to worst in Kalahandi and Balangir region. One bridge on Hati river near Karchala in Kalahandi was already promised during Hemanada Biswal as Chief Minister, but to this Government it is going to deaf's ear. Projects like Biju KBK Yojana, WODC etc with poor budgetary provision and vision for a large part of the regions are just political eye wash as its not helping to improve infrastructure, higher education and health facilities in the regional level. Thanks to Central Government scheme for PMGSY at least rural/village roads are improving all over Odisha. Of course, 2 kg rice scheme is a politically correct development.
This seems to be a neutral article.

The other article (by ruling party leader) was also published in Tathya. Though the leader does not say openly, from his demand/speech it is evident that still Western part of Odisha is being neglected.
