Udupi, Aug 6: The foundation stone laying ceremony of rickshaw driver Babanna from Kalmady near here was held on Wednesday, August 5.

Babanna is living in an old thatched house. He spreads tarpaulin over the thatched house during the rainy season to prevent the water from seeping inside the house. The foundation stone for a new 350 square feet house for Babanna was done by K Raghavendra Kini, president of Udupi Urban Development Authority (UUDA).

Speaking on the occasion Kini said, "This noble deed that has taken place on the same day as the laying of the foundation stone of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya is a memorable one. Let the house of Babanna, who is financially very poor as well as a Dalit, be built soon."

Raghavendra Kini also donated his one month salary which he received as the president of UUDA for the construction of the house of Babanna. The electrical wiring of the house will be done by Asare Charitable Trust (R).

Speaking on the occasion, Sundar J Kalmady, local municipal councillor requested the cooperation of everyone to complete the construction of the house as soon as possible.

Prabhakar Kalmady, president of autorickshaw union Sadhu, city president of backward morcha Vinay Kumar Kalmady, Manoj Kumar Kalmady, Krishna Kalmady, Harish Kalmady, Sachin S V Kalmady, Ramesh Kalmady, booth president Ranjith Palan, secretary Girish Kalmady, Mohammed Fakir, Prajit Kalmady, Balakrishna Kalmady and Lathish Kalmady were present.
