Maoists had called for a boycott on Republic day in OdishaDear Friends,
The Maoists had called for a boycott on the Republic day to avoid the celebrations on 26th January 2012. They had also declared that day as a black day. But, the people of Odisha didn't give their support to that boycott and actively participated in the celebrations of republic day functions.
This shows the involvement of Odia people in the development of the state and faith towards the nation. This attitude of the Odia people is appreciable and it should be continued in the future also.
