Kalinga Sena & Odia Pua filed FIR against Hindustan Times


Kalinga Sena FIR against Hindustan Times
Odisha based regional outfit Kalinga Sena and socio-cultural organization Odia Pua lodged separate complaints at Capital police station in Bhubaneswar and Fatepur Beri police station in New Delhi against national English Daily Hindustan Times for an anti-Orissa article written by columnist Indrajit Hazra and published on July 24.

In that article, Indrajit Hazra wrote, “No one’s really noticed, but the Oriyas are really upset. Again. There was a chance that one of their own would finally become the president of India this time around. But no one from Orissa even made the grade as any political party’s presidential candidate. To add insult to injury, the 13th President is a Bengali and the outbreak of celebrations in the state next door has been keeping neighbours in Orissa awake at night.”

BJD’s vice-president Damodar Rout said the party is planning to move the Press Council of India against the writer and newspaper.

“We will not allow sale of the newspaper in Odisha. The Press Council of India should take serious note of the inflammatory piece of writing,” said Hemant Rath, founder of Kalinga Sena.

“The article promotes enmity on grounds of race, language and regional groups. The article showed as if Odias were against Pranab Mukherjee’s elevation as President of India. This is irresponsible journalism by the author,” said another complainant Shyamsundar Sahoo of Odia Pua.

    It seems like the writer of the article is a Bengali. And he is very happy with the fact that Odia are being upset now and also we claim that which is not belongs to us. He was also highlighting that no odia yet made the grade as any political party’s presidential candidate.
    I just want to make one point that today nobody could make to Raisina Hills without congress party president – worshipping, and the fact is who could be a better one without him. We Odia don’t have that ‘chaplushi’ skill so we face problem.

      yes it is true that the writer is a Bengali and i want to add some points:

      1. the heading of that article”…..Bengalis can forgive indians”
      2.the line which says- now a Punjabi occupies that… that is the PM.
      3.the post of president is bigger because it has more entertainment allowance and perks

      this reflects that the writter is not so a wise, educated and have any idea about the parliamentary type of govermentthat we have.he has to learn the diff. between parliamentary and presidential type of gov.
