KALAHANDI: Industrialisation is as important as a clean environment; without industry development will be hard to come: This message was the outcome at a University Grants Commission sponsored National Level Seminar organized by Government Autonomous College, Bhawanipata and supported Vedanta Aluminium Limited, Lanjigarh.

The seminar on “Industry and Environment” and “Industry and Society” – held at Bhawanipatna, Kalahandi – was attended and participated by noted academicians of educational institutions across Odisha and outside the state on February 25 and 26, 2012.

Prof. Gopabandhu Behera and Dr. A K Nanda – well-known academicians of Kalahandi attended the seminar as Chief Guest and Guest of Honour respectively while Dr. Mukesh Kumar – President & COO Vedanta Aluminium Limited, Lanjigarh was the chief speaker on the occasion.

Dr. Mukesh Kumar insisted that in a place like Kalahandi, which is popularly known as a backward district in the country, it is important to establish an industry for the development of the area. “Few years back, Kalahandi was known for malnutrition, draught, poverty and many such taglines which describe an area as underdeveloped. But we should not take pride in it; rather we should work out a plan to make the district a developed area. An industry, with cooperation with the society and institution, can make a difference in such a situation. Industry definitely can bring change in the region like Lanjigarh of Kalahandi.”

Prof. Behera said, “Before pointing any finger to industry, we should try our best at our level to make a clean environment. Industries make pollutions, but we should create a road map which will make space for industries which are the main reason for development.” Dr. Nanda also reiterated the same and batted for industrialisation keeping in mind the environment and society.

The two-day seminar, coordinated by Dr. Ajay Mishra of Govt. Autonomous College, was concluded on February 26. Academicians from various educational institutions like BJB College, Bhubaneswar and Sambalpur University attended.
