It is common in western Odisha to find people, especially unskilled youths, migrating to Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in search of livelihoods and often facing exploitation, torture, hardship and even losing their lives.
However, in new development, a skilled youth, Tuleshwar alias Suryaa Sahu (35) of Bolangir town, who was working as tailor in a company at Tirupur in Tamil Nadu died at the Vijayawada railway station while returning home on Wednesday, His body was brought to Balangir on Saturday.
Suryaa used to migrate to Tirupur often from Balangir during the last six years. He had earlier quit his job at a company and joined a new one at Tirupur 25 days ago. As he suffered from fever, his family members told him to return home. While on his way home, he complained of stomach pain and died at Vijayawada.
“Suryaa died allegedly due to negligence by the company where he worked. Had the company taken adequate medical care for him, his life could have been saved. We demand compensation to the deceased labourer’s family from the Balangir district administration,” demanded social activist Lalit Nayak speaking to mediapersons here.
“The Labour Department will conduct an inquiry into the incident. We will also contact labour officials of Tamil Nadu. After inquiry, appropriate measures will be taken,” said Balangir Assistant Labour Officer Dileshwar Khakha.

Monday, 10 April 2017 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The Zilla Adivasi Kalyan Sangh of Balangir has expressed concern over the slow process of investigation by police into the fake caste certificate issues and urged the police administration to expedite the inquiry process and submit report to the Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC) Sambalpur.
A delegation of tribals on Saturday led by Sangh secretary Niranjan Bisi, Braja Kishor Singh Bhoi and Zilla Parishad Member Satya Narayan Bhoi met Additional SP Sashi Bhushan Satpathy, ADM Laxmikant Pyarelal Pradhan, Sub-Collector Bimal Prasad Mahanty and appraised their demands.
As per a ruling of the Supreme Court, there should be a DSP of Vigilance in the SP office who would inquire into fake caste certificate issues and report it to State-level scrutiny committee. Moreover, earlier it was decided that the police administration would complete inquiry of 33 cases of fake caste certificate each month. For one year, it was followed but later slowed down to almost nil report.
“RDC officials are also informing us that no inquiry report from the SP office is reaching here,” said Niranjan Bisi.
Additional SP Satpathy informed that a total of 11 completed cases, including five this year, have been submitted to the State-level scrutiny committee.
“We are leaving no stone unturned to arrest the main accused Bijaya Bariha of the Pardhiapali case,” added the Additional SP.
The Zilla Adivasi Lalyan Sangh submitted a 10-point charter of demands to the district administration.
