The BJP on Sunday lashed out at the State Government for its apathy to the demand for a permanent bench of the Odisha High Court in Western Odisha.

The demand for a permanent bench of the High Court needs the approval of the Central Government and the Parliament as well.

But the State Government has confined itself only to writing letters to the Chief Justice  (CJ) of the High Court.

The Chief Minister NAveen Patnaik is yet to show his commitment by taking up the issue directly with the Centre, said BJP spokesperson Suresh Pujari.

The BJP leader said the talks with the representatives of the Central Action Committee (CAC) of All Western Odisha Bar Associations failed due to lack of commitment on the part of the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister can win the confidence of the people of Western Odisha if his Government passes a resolution in the Assembly demanding a permanent bench of the High Court as it did in case of special category status for the State, he said.

Pujari alleged that Justice CR Pal Commission of inquiry will be of no help to find a solution as the matter will be decided by the Centre.

Even after five years, the Commission has not been able to submit its report.

The Western Odisha people have lost their patience after such a long wait, he added.
