Bhubaneswar: ONT Bureau ,9/1/17
Chairman of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Justice HL Dattu today said the Commission has received nearly 30,000 complaints from Odisha during 2015-16.
Inaugurating the three-day camp court of NHRC at Jayadev Bhawan in the city here, Justice Dattu raised several issues in the state.
Talking about the status of health and education in Malkangiri district, the former Chief Justice of Supreme Court said the state government has utterly failed to address the issues of Health and Education sectors which are in a shambles in this remote and tribal dominated district. He also mentioned that there is a gross violation of the Right to Education in the district. “As per the information the Commission has received, 72 primary schools in Malkangiri district have no infrastructure of their own,” he pointed out.NHRC chairman also expressed grave concern over women’s trafficking in Sundargarh district and starvation deaths in the undivided KBK (Kalahandi-Bolangir-Koraput) district.
Coming down heavily on the state government, he said the Commission has received complaints on police assault on the protesters and media representatives in gross violation of Human Rights Act.
Referring to the number of complaints, Justice Dattu said the Commission has received 29,956 complaints from Odisha during 2015-16.
The three-day camp court will run at the State Guest House in which Human Rights violations in Odisha at different times would be thoroughly analysed and deliberated.
