Bus services to Kotia villages in Odisha soon

Koraput: Following distribution of freebies to the tribals in Kotia gram panchayat in Koraput district, Odisha Government is waking up to the need of providing basic facilities in the remote tribal villages in the district on the Andhra Pradesh border.

The District Planning Committee headed by Pottangi MLA Prafulla Pangi, during a visit to several villages in Kotia gram panchayat, promised the villagers to take initiative for launching bus services to the area. The committee reviewed the ongoing developmental projects in Kotia.
