    There must be some corrupt official who authorised all these shops. He needs to be identified, suspended, and fined heavily.

    Most of the Municipal corporations shows their high hardness mainly against Street vendors , fruit & vegetables sellers, small groceries. However, there are violations by the corporate owners, real estate and power people and the local government keep silence. Often this applied at national levels too. Anauthorized constitution, village appearing in Arunacha pradesh but no measures ! Only show of might against weak and rest brush under the carpet.

    Hats off to the Udupi City Municipal Council. When will this happen in Mangalore? When will vehicles be towed when parked on footpath specially in front of jewelry shops, bars, restaurants and etc in Mangalore?

    Tomorrow. This is all just a drama for few days. You think the shopkeepers take these officers seriously? In which country are living.
