Peeved at the refusal of permission for holding a public meeting in Berhampur on March 22, the Odisha Jan Morcha on Monday sought judicial recourse by filing a writ petition in the Orissa High Court.

Secretary of OJM Jangyeswar Babu challenged the letter of the Principal-cum-Superintendent of MKCG Medical College and Hospital, Berhampur, turning down the request for holding the meeting on the college playground for no plausible reasons.

He appealed to the court to direct the latter to allow the Mahasamabesh on the scheduled date.

According to Babu, his party submitted an application on February 24 seeking permission to spare the ground for holding its meeting.

However, the Principal-cum-Superintendent, MKCGMCH, intimated that a decision has been taken in presence of the students’ union members that the auditorium and the playground of the MCH will not be spared for any purpose other than academic purpose.

The petitioner stated in the petition that after the refusal, the party submitted a representation to the Chief Minister but nothing has been intimated till date.
