The News Insight: Whether the Gamang family or Jayaram Pangi or Jhina Hikaka, they failed to develop Koraput despite getting ample opportunities & resources. The killer instinct was definitely missing.
In 2019 polls, when Congress was fighting existential crisis across India, including Odisha, the party defied the trends to win Koraput, just because people of the Parliamentary Constituency reposed trust in an educated, energetic and youth leader with high hopes.
A lot is expected from Saptagiri Ulaka, the new MP. He represents the youth who aspire to grow and shine. Now, it’s up to him how he fulfils those aspirations.
