I would request State Government to take people into confidence and respect their sentiments before trying to evict such structures, she expressed.
when queried about alleged religious conversions in the region by Christian missionaries, she said that the conversions are happening not only in coastal regions but also across Karnataka. In order to curb this trend, I would request the government to make stricter laws with regard to the same.
