The Speaker of Orissa Legislative Assembly has corrected the wrong done to this News Portal.
Entry passes to Press gallery and Lobby were surprisingly denied to its Representative-in-Chief, Subhas Chandra Pattanayak, for the last session, as the concept of Internet Journalism could not be properly appreciated.
Sri Pattanayak had attracted attention of the Press Council of India to this.
But in the meantime, the Speaker has appreciated the position and has caused issuance of all the Passes in favour of Sri Pattanayak.
orissamatters.com has thus become the first news portal of the State to receive the Assemblys official approval.
