Late Jagabandhu Singh

Late Jagabandhu Singh was a freedom fighter, Historian, Writer, Astronomer,Legislator and a true Odia in heart. Jagabandhu Singh from Puri, a close associate of Pandit Gopabandhu was chosen as the president of UUC(Utkal Union Conference) with the overwhelming support of his followers in 1920. This Chakradharpur session became a landmark in the history of the conference, because for the first time it accepted the Congress creed as one of its objectives. The session was presided by Jagabandhu Singh, his dominant role in bringing about the change in the outlook of the conference. We need to carry forward his ideologies with us. Today we require these weapons more than ever to build a better society.
