Addressing students and public, he said, “We are committed for the development of Koraput.” The CM dedicated projects worth Rs 1,596 crore to the people of Koraput.

Jeypore MLA and chairman of the platinum jubilee celebration organising committee Tara Prasad Bahinipati said a university status for the Vikram Deb College was a longstanding demand of the people of this region. “We are thankful to the Chief Minister for fulfilling our demand.”
Apart from releasing a college souvenir, the CM released a special postal cover on Koraput tourism on the occasion and financial assistance for the women Self-Help Groups.
