Udupi: Drainage problem - Municipality inactive, young volunteers to undertake work

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (HB/SP)

Udupi, Jul 11: The problem with drainage at Kukkikatte main road where it passes through Badagabettu village, has been persistent for the last several years. The issue causes a lot of inconvenience and problems for the people and others who use this road all times of the day.

The area falls within Udupi municipal limits. On one side, Indiranagar ward is located with the other belonging to Chitlpady ward. Even though the locals and others brought this problem to the notice of municipal officials and councillors, so far no action has been taken to address this problem.

Social worker Ansar Ahmed, who is aware of the problem, is now determined to provide a lasting solution to the problem. Two banners highlighting the failure of the municipality have been planted at the spot. Udupi municipality and local people's representatives have been given a deadline of July 18 to solve the problem. If the issue remains unresolved till then, he plans to join a team of 40 young volunteers and voluntarily work to address the problem. At that time, a banner decrying the apathy of municipal councillors would be planted at the site.

A 40-member strong team is now ready to challenge the municipality. Ansar said that even in the future whenever problems arise in public places, he is ready to solve the problem by arranging voluntary workers.

    Jossey Saldanha, Mumbai, I fully agree with your comments. I was a Mumbaikar at one time since I was born and bought up by parents with my sisters and brother. We all graduated in good schools and colleges and moved on with our life in US. This drainage problem has been since a long time.

    Who is India? Indians are India. We are India. We can see our changed India only when we change ourselves by our good thoughts/good behavior/showing humanity and step towards the progress of India/towards the development of India.....we should keep away our selfish thoughts and think only about the betterment of our family our house we can't see a CHANGED INDIA. Every Indian should take up the responsibility to change our India......Lets try for it....India is just a map...

    Why the public didnt wake up althose seven years ? Now the municipality is busy admitting the people into the hospital, who has common cold/fever and discharge after three days. .. come on people take up the initiative and do the needful....After all, its we have to live in the area ...just forget the double increment of tax that you paid for one year....All the best...if you don't pay the tax, they don't forget to put the fine...

    What is Municipality role? Tender and make some income? If they are too busy to attend such work....they should not contest elections! Congratulations to the youth willing to solve the problem!
