Title: Need to provide a speical relief package for development of Kandhamal district of Orissa -laid.
SHRI RUDRAMADHAB RAY (KANDHAMAL) : I would like to draw the attention of the House towards pathetic condition of the people of Kandhamal district of Orissa. the area has suffered large scale violence in the recent past and is also vulnerable to Maoist’s attacks. the Kandhamal district is worst-hit by floods almost every year. Kandhamal distrct is also placed at the lowest level for food secuirty as reported in various World Bank and Governemnt reports. iwould request the Governemnt to provide a special relief package for the development of Kandhamal district. I appreciate the schemes being launched by the Government for the developemnt of Tribals. Iwould request the Government to include Kandhamal district under the KBK scheme of Government of India.
