    All poor native villagers are chased away with pittiance amount. This is the glaring example how people with money and black money can play a role to further their interest and you can see how the politicians support them for their cause not simply but for some thing in handsome return. But to construct a small house for a common citizen there is endless procedures at last he ends up with non construction. Godman and dirty politicains are solely responsible for this poor state of our common man. The entire curse will be on them. Jai Bharath Matha.

    Is there anything for a poor man ?. Money moves in a vicious circle, politics-realty-celebities. Law abiding poor man toils and law breaking by the moneyed people continues. All fanfare looks like a drama

    Mangalore does not need such towers, neither it can sustain them. No power, no sanitation, no water, you name it and Mangalore has it all. What we need for development is "manufacturing industries" first and not concrete towers.

    This is a good news for all of us, but to build a small house near the sea side in suratkal you will not get door number because you have no permission to build any house upto 500 meters from the sea. Here they are building a tower
