He fought against the throttling of democracy in the historic J.P. movement for which he was jailed during the Emergency for months together. As chairman of High Court Bar Association Action Committee shri Harichandan led the Lawyers’ agitation in Odisha against the supersession of Judges in Supreme Court in 1974 and roused public opinion against the dictatorial regimes of the Smt. Indira Gandhi, the then, Prime-Minister.

  • During his tenure as a Cabinet Minister in 1977, the essential commodities, which were scarce during emergency, were not only freely made available but were available at economic price and the price-line was steadily maintained. His stringent actions against the black marketers and hoarders made him very popular in Odisha.
  • As Revenue Minister, he laid emphasis on computerization of land records, simplification and codification of revenue laws for convenience of administration and took bold steps for restoration of Adivasi land which are illegally and fraudulently transferred by amending Regulation 2 of 1956 and making it more stringent. Reorganized the revenue administration by making it more pro-people.
  • As Industry Minister he took initiative in introducing single window system and got the Industry facilitation Act passed. The much sought for R.R Policy of the State which brought a revolutionary change in the field of Rehabilitation and re-settlement of the displaced persons was the brain-child of Sri Harichandan who in his capacity as the Chairman of the Cabinet Sub-Committee gave it final shape which was then the best R.R. Policy of the Country.
  • Due to his stiff opposition, the State was saved from selling away all the surplus government land for repayment of Government’s loans for which the State Cabinet had already taken a decision while he was absent from the head quarter. He said that state is the owner of the land and not the government which has limited powers like Trustees. He vehemently opposed the sale of the surplus govt. lands and was able to get the decision changed.
  • His constant endeavour since 1978, helped to a great extent in giving National recognition to ‘Paik Bidroh of 1817’, the historic war for freedom by the Oriyas under the great Leadership of Buxi Jagabandhu against the British regime by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri. Narendra Modiji who directed its bicentenary celebration in the National level.
