    Udipi is the new hotspot for CORONA; by resuming public transport & opening religious places at this time can lead to a flareup!

    We cannot blame people came from other states.
    They are residents of India.
    They pay tax. They are part of developing India.
    They use their skills which they got due to free education policy of India, in developing their mother country.
    They look after their aged parents.
    So Govt has a responsibility to take care of them.
