BHUBANESWAR, Nov. 16. — Hundreds of BJP activists staged a dharna in front of Raj Bhavan here today in protest against ...

Citing the recent move of the UPA government to shift the proposed National Institute of Sciences from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata, the BJP leaders said that this was the burning example of the “step-motherly treatment” of UPA government towards Orissa. It may be noted that the NDA government had decided in 2003 to set up National Institute of Sciences in six places including Bhubaneswar.
