Mangalore: Under the leadership of former MLA Vijay Kumar Shetty, the members of the Karavali Jeevanadi Netravathi Rakshana Samithi organised a ‘rail roko’ protest at Kankanady railway station on Tuesday January 28 opposing the proposed Yettinahole project.

More than 50 members of the Samithi were among those who intercepted  the Karwar – Bangalore bound train for 20 minutes agitating over the issue of Netravathi river diversion or Yettinahole project.
