Orissa representatives have made a good start on the NIS IISER issue

The Orissa MLAs and the Orissa MPs have made a good start on the NIS IISER issue. They desreve our thanks.

But just so that we are on track, I would like to emphasize that our goal is still far away. So far the MLA's and MP's actions have resulted in good publicity in local (Bhubanewswar, Orissa) newspapers, local editions of national newspapers, and wire services.

Unfortunately, none of the national media (and national newspapers) has picked it up. In other words the rest of India does not quite know the gross injustice that has been done to Orissa. That may be neceessary before the central government feels embarassed and responsible enough to take some concrete action. I hope the MPs and MLAs have thought of actions that would lead to national media highlighting this issue.
