Mangaluru: Government’s lethargy on sea erosion is what prevents release of NDRF Funds for building temporary retention wall, said Former Chief Minister Veerappa Moily.

Speaking to mediapersons on Saturday July 23 he said that though there is a provision to release funds from the NDRF Scheme for temporary retention wall to stop sea erosion damages, they are sitting quiet without spending the NDRF funds. He questioned as to who was preventing them from taking up emergency work so far.

On Saturday July 23 morning he visited the Someshwara, Uchila and Battampadi sea erosion affected area and listened to the problems of the locals. When our Government was in power, we carried out work in many sea erosion affected areas including estuary gates and any permanent work required every year. But the BJP Governments at the Centre and in the State have been indifferent and neglecting the sea erosion-hit Uchila-Battamppadi areas for the past three years. If the budget does not pay for even minimum maintenance, the sea is bound to become turbulent and swallow up the coastline. Already the local Bovi people are in danger of losing their existence in the area. I and MLA U. T. Khader will immediately meet the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and hold discussions on carrying out urgent secondary and permanent works to prevent sea erosion.

He was accompanied by local MLA Khader and Block Congress President Sadashiva Ullal.
