Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) and its founder Dr. Achyuta Samanta’s social work was widely appreciated in Lok Sabha on Friday, April 7, 2017.
Participating in a discussion, MP from Tikamgarh (Madhya Pradesh) Dr. Virendra Kumar said the need of the hour was to encourage people like Dr. Samanta who are instrumental in transforming the society.
He said Dr. Samanta has set an example for the whole world by providing free residential education to 25,000 tribal students besides setting up another popular institution of global standard- KIIT University. The money from KIIT is invested to fund the poor tribal students studying in KISS.
Appreciating Dr. Samanta’s efforts at KISS, he said “I salute this great man and his selfless work. We need people like Dr. Samanta who can work without any political ambitions or personal goals. We should encourage persons like Dr. Samanta, who is working for those people who really need it. I can proudly say that he has been working for society and not for publicity. I have a great respect for this gentleman and I heartily congratulate him.”
