Mangalore: The incident in Udaipur is a heinous act, said Mangaluru MLA U. T. Khader.
Speaking at a media conference at the Congress Bhavan in Mallikatte, he said, “Such acts are undertaken by those who are not afraid of law and order. The accused should be hanged, while the Centre should track people and network behind this incident and punish them, he added.
Khader said that the Government has approved to open three Government PU Colleges in the State, among this one college will begin at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Governmeng School, Deralakatte. Classes will start from this academic year. The Government has sanctioned the commencement of PU College here based on the number of students, he added. The college would help in the development of the constituency, he noted.
The dis6trict has not yet convened any meetings to discuss rainfall issues. He urged District In-Charge Minister, and Disaster Management Committee to conduct a meeting so that the authorities be guided in order to better manage the rainy season. “Task Force Committees have been set up at each Gram Panchayat level as a precautionary measure in my Constituency. The committee consists of representatives, officials, organisations and gram panchayat representatives.”
The MLA also said that, three helpline centres were opened in the field to address the rain-affected areas. A landslide has occurred in many areas of my constituency, which has been brought to the notice of the Deputy Commissioner.
Khader said that the NIT-K had requested a team of experts from Surathkal to submit a report on the matter. Some people living in Someshwara and the other side of the sea face a problem due to sea erosion. But the State Government has no concern for such people. The government is not looking for any permanent way to prevent the sea erosion, he noted and adding that the problem could be brought under control if the sea walls were built, he added.
