Servants of the People Society founded by Lala Lajpat Rai having usurped the Samaja by forging a WILL of its founder, Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das, has been involved in rampant misappropriation of the funds of the paper and many crimes conducted in the name of the major daily.
In order to please the Chief Minister of Orissa Naveen Patnaik by satisfying his craze for publicity and seeing his name inscribed in stone plates, the gang of illegal occupiers of the Samaja led by Manubhai Patel has demolished the well known and highly revered statue of Gopabandhu in Gopabandhu Bhawan to install another depicting Patnaik in the inauguration plate.
Aganst this ghastly sacrilege of the revered statue of Gopabandhu, on the occasion of his death anniversary, the Save the Samaja Forum will conduct a protest rally on July 8 that will start from Gopabandhu Park in front of the Samaja office and proceed to Suando, the birthplace of Gopabandhu. Click here to peruse the version of the Forum before the public in course of the rally.
The rally would comprise motor cycles and cars and a special vehicle christened Sankalpa Ratha (Car carrying the pledge of the Forum) fitted with audio system to make people aware of the illegalities going on in the Samaja, the paper they have built up by their financial support.
