Mangalore, Mar 26: Richard Hyde, British deputy high commissioner to Karnataka, visited the city and met officials of the deputy commissioner’s (DC) office on Wednesday March 25.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, he said that the purpose of the visit is to explore business opportunities and cultural exchanges between the United Kingdom and the city. “The coastal region meets all requirements to establish information technology sector and special economic zone”, Hyde added.
He also visited northern cities of the state as the scope of work of the British deputy high commission has been extended to other cities of the state.
Hyde, who is also head of the British Trade Office in Hyderabad, said that the coastal city has been growing very fast and possible business exchange would create jobs. He added that greater co-ordination between India and UK is an essential factor for development activities in the state.

    Mr. Hyde must have convinced that coastal area is dictated by so called cultured but uncultured people, so called religious but unbelievers of religious values, educated but hypocratic fundamentalists who practice western culture but cannot tolerate others practicing, in the name of Indian culture terrorise people what to eat and drink, how to work and walk, terifying women

    Can someone tell Mr Hyde that people of Mangalore are not civilized like the rest of India or rest of the world. He should also be told that the city is full of religious fanatics and that western culture is not tolerated here.

    I could not see our D.C. Mr. Ponnuraj meeting Mr. Hyde, British Deputy High Commissioner in the snap.Either prior appointment was not taken by Mr. Hyde or D.C. had other priorities. This loose protocol always affects our city's image.
