Odisha’s leading daily the Samaja is performing the role of a watchdog while advocating rich legacy and culture of the State

Cuttack:3/7/19: Odisha’s leading daily the Samaja which is now on the centennial year of its publication continues to keep intact its unbiased and unprejudiced stand on a daily basis. Side by side, it is performing the role of a watchdog while advocating rich legacy and culture of the State, said Deepak Malviya president of Lok Seva Mandal and chairman Samaja managing committee.

Malaviya while speaking at a function at Saheed Bhawan in Cuttack on the occasion of observance of 91st death anniversary of Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das said “the great statesman like Utkalmani acted in the noble companionship of revered ‘Pancha Sakha’ for betterment of then Utkal Pradesh.
