SAMBALPUR: The dust raised over creation of a separate state comprising districts of western Orissa refuses to settle down with members of the Sambalpur Bar Association (SBA) joining the bandwagon.

Speaking to mediapersons today, president of SBA Pradeep Bohidar welcomed all the organisations demanding creation of separate state comprising districts of western Orissa and assured all support in the stir.

Maintaining that the State Government is pursuing the policy of ‘divide and rule’ be it setting up High Court bench in the region or creation of a separate state, he said that the State Government was trying to put the people of the region against each other.

Elaborating on the stir over setting up of permanent HC bench in western Orissa and issuing an ultimatum to the State Government to declare it by January next, Bohidar said that it will be the final fight and the members of the Bar Association would not only sit on fast unto death but may also resort to economic blockade.
