Reporter Jaya bardhan Dash of the Oriya daily ‘The Samaja’ succumbed today to cardiac arrest at Berhampur. Till his death he was actively working for the Samaja.
The newspaper is under illegal occupation of Servants of the People Society, New Delhi. It is a habitual litigant organisation and has been harassing the workers with non-payment of dues.
Taking its conduct into consideration, it is apprehended that heirs of Dash may not be promptly and properly paid with dues of the journalist.
We call upon his fraternal friends of Berhampur to keep a watch and see that his dues are properly paid.
Dash was President of Berhampur Press Club and had tremendous contribution to sports in the area. We pay our respects to the departed doyen of journalism in the district that had taken leadership in newspaper production in the State.
