Pragativadi (in Oriya): Arjun Singh says that IIT for Orissa still under consideration

Pragativadi on 3/9/2007 reports that HRD minister Mr. Arjun Singh has said that the proposal for an IIT in Orissa is still under consideration and the state government has a received a letter to that effect from Mr. Arjun Singh.

However, the headline of the Pragativadi news item "Arjun Singh assures Orissa will have an IIT" does not match with the text of the news item. Mr. Singh has only said that the proposal is still under consideration and has not been rejected. That does not mean it has been accepted. Hence, we still need to continue making our points in letters to the PM, HRD M, UPA Chairperson Mrs. Gandhi, and Orissa MPs.

(Thanks to Baijayanta babu for pointing to this news item.)
