.....BJD leader B K Tripahi said the NDA leaders also decided to vociferously protest against the government's reported move to shift the National Institute of Science from Bhubaneswar to West Bengal.
This blog chronicles a movement to correct an injustice and get an IISER to Odisha. In 12/2003, the then HRD minister and the president had announced 4 National Inst. of Sc.(NIS) at Bhubaneshwar, Chennai, Pune and Allahabad. The 2004-05 announcements of IISERs at Pune and Kolkata overrode that. Thus ensued a successful movement to correct this injustice, especially with respect to Odisha.
