It was Bhrugu, who pursued the matter and he received full support from the Railway Minister as well as the District BJD. The bypass will ensure smooth traffic movement in the Koraput town.

It can be noted that the NH-26 which connects Vizag to Raipur, has been the lifeline for the entire Koraput district. The Koraput Bypass had received the nod 6 years ago, but the work could not be expedited due to the problem with land acquisition and Railway Department’s non-cooperation.

In another development, the place where renowned litterateur, Jnanapitha Award Winner and Padma Bhushan Late Gopinath Mohanty spent most of his working years, got the nod to be converted into the Memorial House. It was long-standing demand of people in undivided Koraput region as well as other parts of the state, which is being fulfilled thanks to the intervention of the Railway Minister who held discussions with the concerned officials including the BSNL, which was using it as a goddown, informed Bhrugu Baxipatra.
