Udupi: Illegal fish market next to building creates miserable conditions for residents

Udupi, Oct 28: Residents of a multi-storey building here have strongly opposed the illegal sale of fish in front of their building in Santhekatte.

Several fisherwomen sell their fish in front of the said building giving rise to problems for people and vehicles coming to the building.

Back in 2015, a full-fledged fish market was built in Santhekatte near the highway at the cost Rs 25 lac. However, the sale of fish stopped there gradually due to the scarcity of water and the market also remained closed for the last several months.

Building resident Seema Quadros speaking to Daijiworld said, "The fisherwomen sell fish every evening at 8.30 pm. This causes the fish odour to spread everywhere. As several people come here to buy fish, vehicles coming into the building are facing problems."

"The number of fisherwomen has also increased since the last week and a temporary shed has also been put in place. A wall is also being built with red stones," she added.

The building has over 238 houses and more than 25 shops. The residents have also argued that the fish market hinders the business of shops in the building.

Another building resident Arthur stated that the wastewater from the fish is also being discarded in the building vicinity.

Building occupants have complained to the deputy commissioner, health department and corporation commissioner about the problems being faced by them. The residents have urged the district administration and people representatives to help them from the stench and inconvenience caused by the fish market.

    Modi asked the government officials to build toilet in each every household. He sanctioned 30000 for each toilet. More 30000 toilets were constructed in one place using government money. Toilets were given to the people without drainage connections so people started using these toilets as store room.
    When government is spending 25 lacs than why water arrangements not made.
    Each and every contractor or politicians wants to do work after taking commission so no one is questionable/answerable. Only people are sufferers 5727

    If municipality wants to build public toilet in front of your house do you object it or you will keep silent thinking everyone wants toilet in the morning and building public toilet is legal.

    Fish market built worth Rs 25 lakhs but no water now, Swacch Bharat Toilets built spending crores no water. Finally electric poles on streets and electric bulbs in every house but no electricity. Digital money but no money. Darkness, water scarcity and no money of Atmanirbhar growing everywhere. It's a Make-in-India patent project after 2014. Just vocal for local
