    Private buses plying from Brahmavar to Udupi are overcrowded with no rules being followed.
    Why is the district administration turning a blind eye to this gross violation?
    Till now Udupi district has done well to contain Covid with the excellent coordination between various departments.
    Please look into the matter and take strict action against erring bus owners
