    To reach Mangalore Udupi area, one has to cross Gujrath, Maharastra, Goa from North. Then TamilNadu and Kerela from South.

    So what is our intelligence and home ministry trying to prove, that there is a sea tunnel which opens up in Mangalore from another continent ?

    Awaste Maare...

    BJP govt should take care of our city and give tight security and keep our lives safe. Security shouldn't get limited only during alerts. It's better to have it all the time since it's easy for terrorists to enter through sea.

    Dakshin Kannada district, especially Mangaluru city, has become a safe, convenient hideout, for many shady characters !!!! Most of the land/flat owners, are NRI... they flout the mandatory registration and police verification process. Most societies have poor security cover, very few are covered by CCTV !!!!!! These customers, offer a higher market rent, the city lies on NH66, with air and sea port, in close proximity to North Kerala.... a known hotbed of radical religious extremism !!!! Hence a perfect, anonymous, foolproof, refuge for Anti National, destructive elements !!!!!!!!!!!

    The prediction of prominent think tankers who kept saying current policies of Modi and Shah inviting trouble to India seems comes nearly true.
