Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan Offers Centre’s Intervention To Solve Odisha’s Border Disputes

Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan wrote to Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik offering Centre’s intervention in resolving border disputes with neighboring states.

Citing the border tensions between Odisha and Andhra Pradesh over Sunabeda village in Koraput district, he sought for a resolution.

“Odisha has a long history of border disputes with all these neighbouring states owing to historical, cartographic and geological reasons,” the letter read.

A total of 14 districts in the state share their borders with Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Jharkhand.
