Note: A good suggestion, indeed we have been asking state Govt. to connect Dharamgarh and Umakote directly via Jharigram since a while, which will benefit bordering area of KBK and directly connect Umarkote with Balangir, Kalahandi, Sonepur, Kandhamal etc.

The Pioneer, Sept 13, 2014
Demanding the proposed Biju Express Highway route to cover four blocks, including Dabugam, Umerkote, Jharigam and Chandahandi of Nabarangpur district, a delegation of the Zilla Nagarik Suraksha O Sachetan Manch submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik through district Collector Md Sadique Alam on Thursday.
Notably, the proposed highway with a cost of Rs 3,200 crore would connect Jagadalpur in Chhattisgarh with Rourkela via Kotpad, Boriguma, Nabarangpur, Papadahandi, Maidalpur, Ampani, Kenduguda, Dharamgarh, Nuapada, Saintala, Bargarh, Sambalpur and Jharsuguda. It would cover four KBK districts and four districts in the western Odisha. For a more convenient communication facility in the tribal-dominated district, the delegation demanded that the highway be diverted from Papadahandi junction to Dabugam, Umerkote, Jharigam, Chandahandi and then Dharamgarh instead of Maidalpur-Ampani-Kenduguda as the existing NH-26 passes through the Maidalpur-Ampani-Junagarh-Bargarh route.
