Several tourists are arriving to the beach. Travellers on the national highway are unhappy as the department concerned has failed to dispose the decomposed whale.

There is a demand from the public that the concerned department should come forward to clear the decomposed whale.

    responsibility to dispose of the fish is on the local body (panchayat / municipality)…if dogs eat the rotten body, there might be rabies outbreak....

    It's a dolphin. Not whale. Also, it's an aquatic mammal, not a fish.
