Mangaluru: Salute! Tireless effort by police amid heavy downpour saves several lives

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 30: The personnel of police department, working in coordination with other departments, proved that their motto is serving the people, by promptly rushing to their help when they needed the most, after heavy downpour heaped miseries on people living in low-lying areas.

Some of the people where the police and other personnel rushed to help the people were Padil Kodakkal, Kottara Chowki, Mannagudda, City Hospital Mallikatta, Thokkottu, Hosabettu, Karavali Circle and Pumpwell, Konchady, Kolnad, Yeyyady, Jyothi bus stand, Ballalbagh, KPT, central railway station, Chokkabettu, Attavar, Kadri Uadayanagar, KSRTC and Bharat Mall, and Gujarati school at Alake.

The police shifted about ten families living in low-lying area near Navagiri hall, Hosabettu, to safer place. About 400 children, who were stranded in Gujarati School Alake after the school building was surrounded with water, were safetly brought out with the help of boats. They put their best efforts to bring out Mohini (60) from under landslide at Uadayanagar near KPT, but unfortunately her life could not be saved.

Water has entered various houses in places like Jalligudde, Akash Bhavan, Kavoor, Ullal Bail and other places. Operation to empty the water has been undertaken on war footing.

People living in low-lying areas at Adyapady within Bajpe police station limits were shifted to school where revenue officials have opened free food centre.

The city police commissioner and deputy commissioners of police personally moved through the city and worked in tandem with Mescom, city corporation, fire brigade and expert divers. They guided the concerned in affected areas and paved way for smooth movement of vehicles where there is problem and took safety measures.

Television channels, Akashvani and FM radio have been working along with police department to issue warnings to peoplel not to unnecessarily venture out of houses, and issuing alerts about traffic blocks etc. A company of national natural disaster response force is arriving in the city to extend help to the district administration to handle the situation.

    Really Guys you all have lost your minds. I see India will soon be the next Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or any African country. This country is not the country we have spend our childhood. It has changed and the change is not development but the way we think, we respect others, our unity.

    Just for sometime do some research why there is war and who are benefiting, Do you know because of these wars in the gulf regions few people have become millionaires. The middle class, the poor will never get benefited if we fight like this. Do you know less one percent of the world population control 50% of the world wealth. They build these empires by making us fight among us, create problems which never existed before and breaking our unity.

    Do you people or your children gain something because of these fights, abusing each other, pointing at others mistakes. Do you? Always make this world a better place for us live and for our children also. Remember one thing which my grandma used to tell me, " Son, we are tourist we are send by God to this world to admire and Praise this Creation. When we came to this world we bought nothing and when we depart we take nothing.

    Lastly, now onwards try to write something beautiful and see how nice you we feel when your read the comments

    Awesome 👍 spread peace n love ✌️. Only politicians get benefited with hatred.
    I think no human being is able to leave in peace and think about development, because of political issues. We are just spreading hatred in the name of religion by involving in politics. Peace be with you ✌️

    I will appreciate here RSS doing their services because of simple reason, is they are marketing RSS name even during crisis. They have offered their services as volunteers not as RSS.

    if RSS is so interested to market themselves, then let they organise voluntary services under the umbrella of RSS, then it is fair.; not situation like flood type situations.
