Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik launched Special Development Councils (SDCs) in 14 districts

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Sunday launched Special Development Councils (SDCs) in 14 more districts to carry out tribal development, officials said.

New SDCs have been set up in Angul, Bolangir, Balasore, Bargarh, Boudh, Deogarh, Dhenkanal, Ganjam, Jajpur, Jharsuguda, Kalahandi, Nuapada, Nayagarh and Sambalpur districts.

Earlier, they were launched in nine districts. The aim of the SDC is to further preserve and ensure the socio-economic and cultural development of Odisha’s tribals, officials said. This will benefit about 80 thousand tribals in 172 blocks of these 14 districts, they said.

Respect for nature and universal brotherhood are the foundations of tribal culture, the CM added.
