“Jayi Rajguru sacrificed his life for the nation. His selfless fight and contribution for protection of our motherland are a matter of pride for every Indian,” said Pradyumna Satpathy, a senior journalist.
He added, “Today is the Saheed Divas (martyr day) of eminent freedom fighter Jayi Rajaguru. We are proud to give tributes to him. As our border along Andhra Pradesh is not safe and the neighbouring State is illegally acquiring our land, we want that all Odia people rise to the occasion and act like our brave leader to safeguard our motherland.”
