Houses on the sea shore are facing danger of getting washed away into the sea.

Officer of fisheries and ports department Dias visited Padukare on Friday and inspected the situation. Gram Panchayat member Bhujanga Gurikara was present.

    Why not state and central adopt some scientific method and end the sea erosion problem once for all?. Its going on for several decades. It is not a rocket technology!? Money spent on shoddy work could have had permanent solution throughout the Karnataka coast. Why state and central is lethargic on this matter? Politicians and contractors and babu's need continue leaching of tax payer eh?

    Poor people on the coasts used to suffer silently for a long time... Only nowadays thanks to exposure by Daijiworld and other news channels authorities are forced to act and compensate... Not that state govt has no money... We are one of the richest states in India... Downtrodden are neglected and suppressed unless their plight is made public...
