Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Mar 24: Deputy commissioner (DC) of the district G Jagadeesha, in the company of superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhan, inspected shops and grocery stores in the city and issued instructions wherever felt necessary.

The DC paid a surprise visit to Big Bazar over allegations of repeated violations of government orders like running the air-conditioner.

The DC ordered for the arrest of manager on the spot.

He further asked officials to verify increase in vegetable prices. It is said that Big Bazar had raised vegetable prices by three times.

The DC also visited Malpe port and took stock of the situation. He requested fisheries association president Krishna S Suvarna to vacate the premises at once.

The president and the fishermen had asked for a day’s time to vacate everything. “Nearly 100 fishing boats which have gone for deep sea fishing have not returned yet. A day will be required to unload 700 tonne fish. There is no choice other than throwing the fish back to the sea if everything should be cleared today itself. Therefore, please allow us a day,” they said. The fishermen said that they do not have transport to return to their houses.

The DC said that the order is already in force. “The fishermen are responsible for their own transport. Therefore, the fish should be cleared so that the place is not crowded,” he said. 

The deputy commissioner had earlier announced that Malpe port will be completely shut down from tomorrow onward. He stated that the boats which have already ventured into the sea for undertaking fishing would be allowed to return and boats cannot henceforth leave the port for fishing activity.

    due to daily wages of most of the people, Its difficult to stay at home . Its right time to government to announce at least 10,000 rupees each family to support for their daily needs.

    Government is earning lots of money on reduced price of diesel and petrol in international market.
