People of Western Orissa demands for separate KOSAL State

With the Centre agreeing to separate statehood for Telangana, a similar movement for Koshal in Orissa is all set to be renewed.

The demand for a separate state of Koshal, to be carved out of western Orissa districts, had gathered momentum in October 2003 after former BJP MP Balgopal Mishra started his movement to generate public opinion in this regard. The districts which Mishra wanted to be included in the Koshal state are Kalahandi, Nuapara, Sambalpur, Deogarh, Jharsuguda, Boudh, Bolangir, Sonepur and Sundargarh.

The name of the new state has been derived from Koshal, an erstwhile princely state of 11th century that comprised these districts and parts of present-day Chhattisgarh. Mishra said he would soon revive the movement. “The public sentiment in western Orissa has always been for a separate Koshal state. It’s just that the leaders of the region have failed to fulfil it,” he said.

Meanwhile the student union of Sambalpur University on tuesday blocked the national highway in demand of Kosal state ..Similar situation was there in Rajendra college Balangir where students boycotted classes in demand of Kosal state...

We Consider Kosali language as the mother of Oriya language, the origin of kosali language was found by the historians from Subarnapur in Stambheswari inscription of 12th century A.D. The Kosali language is spoken by about 2 crores of people in the entire KBK belt and Western Orissa and part of A.P., M.P., Chhatisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. It is a matter of regret that the Government of Orissa has not taken any interest to improve the standard of Kosali (Sambalpuri) language.
