It is very sad to our part being an indian,and admiring as jai karnataka mathe, jai ho india and adding gulf countries name after their name.it is true all are working in foreign nations for their daily bread.these political parties are breaking our homes, come on boys we will form a flatform in our village and gather our villagers and political leaders and show them our strength and make them understand their duties.now these days without bribing it is difficult to get our work done from govt. department.unnecesarly scraching heads from so far come and join politcs to repair our currupt systems or else share the bread with our leaders.

Don t comment or curse on Papanashini river. She has enough source of water. May b our politicians are not interested to utilize this. I don t understand how people created this situation in Padubelle. Politicians appeared in these pictures were served the government in the past too. But they did only acting in the stage program. My humble request to the graama panchayat members is, declare the padubelle area is draught effected. And beg to the authorities to grant additional/ special funds to satisfy the locals and own self. Best of luck. Hemphil, you are a anti-national. Why you are not suggesting to solve this problem??

Dear Peter Padubelle you know in B/V who writes his cheap comments only one person he was working before as circus man now works in Dubai one day he is Anner, Anil Valerian, Sequeira, Rakesh some other day he become Hemphill we don t know how many fathers he has God only knows Regarding this water issue why our Belle politicians spent money on Ankduoor dam who is using dam water nobody doing agriculture in this area this money should have been used for the Moodubelle, Padubelle water project at list somebody should have been benefited

The local projects are technical feasible only if local knowledge of water resources is used. An engineer in Udupi, from Tumkur, does not know local geography, terrain, history, and water resources etc. Local inputs are necessary. This shall be provided by Grama Sabha, not only by GP or ward representative. This is why every household should participate in Grama Sabha. Voting once and expecting to sit back and get water and public services is like begging. It is like asking a shopkeeper to deliver rice to my home regularly in exchange for my salaam to him once a year, and giving him a tip on a feast. If that does not work, why it should work when it is the government body that we entrust the job with? Think about it.

Philip Mudartha, Qatar
05/04/2012 15:42:12

Let me explain “The local and PRI will develop projects in alignment and report results’’. Udupi City Municipal Council, Udupi ZP, TP, and Belle GP are local and PRI bodies. Their revenue income includes share in state and central tax collections, grants, donations from world bodies, and taxes they must levy and collect. Karnataka state allocated Rs6, 031Cr for Water Supply and Sanitation in this year’s budget. Udupi and Belle has their share. If more is required, they must collect from people by taxes. Everyone has right to water, but no one has right to beg. Not for food, clothes, shelter, toilet, water, doctor and so forth. When we drew water from our own wells, our forefathers gave from their own sweat and money. Why are we different? Is it because, politicians promise and therefore, we like to believe them and beg at their feet? Why are we servile, useless and selfish? If owning private wells is not feasible due to various reasons, public ownership on shared basis (both water share and costs). This is called alignment to policy framework. The PRI will demand funds to implement state water policy and raise local money also to plan and implement specific projects ..contd

Philip Mudartha, Qatar
05/04/2012 15:23:29

So, the regulation policy should not encourage monopolies. Even if the state wanted to do it since independence and before, citizens dug wells to provide for themselves. Even in towns and cities, except metros. For various reasons, citizens look to the government bodies to provide them with domestic water and even agricultural irrigation.

The people’s representatives and successive governments, regardless of political party in power in Delhi or Bangalore always promise to do it by themselves. They have no capacity to deliver, with existing personnel and available money. Personnel in Bangalore think they know Udupi or Belle. Since local self-rules bodies were formed, known as Panchayat Raj Institutions (PRI), personnel in Udupi and Belle will report to local bodies. And the money will be shared from the state treasury.

Philip Mudartha, Qatar
05/04/2012 15:12:44

State administration shall set policy frameworks. What do I mean? When my household runs out of food, what do I do? I go to a shop and buy it. So, why not water? Because, the state administration does not allow private business in water supply and wants to do it by itself. Its policy is to provide drinking water, irrigation and sanitation to both urban and rural populations through its publicly funded bodies. Public Water Works department (PWWD) is an example.

Since our people in Belle do not have drinking water, the PWWD has not done its job. They either have neglected their duty or have no money. If they have no money, either they have spent it on themselves or we have not paid taxes. Or required rates of taxes have not been levied.

So, a review of policy framework is required. This is state government’s job. It may seek directions from the center, and a share of taxes if the center wants it to do it that way. The state can make policy to private water supply and make laws to regulate businesses. Citizens will pay their water supplier for the water used. Water supplier makes profits, but if he charges too much, competitor will set up business. So, the regulation (contd)

Very well said Baptist. Salian is an useless leader who has done nothing to the community. Only benefited are some of the people around the places. We all should boycott the next election and should not allow any politicians to enter the gramas if nothing is done this time. Please stay firm and united.

You are hundred percent right Mr Baptist Sequeira, Belle. I suggest belle panchayat that near Ankuduru dam and Padubelle bridge there are two big open wells are made by Jerry And team. If our present panchayath leaders utilize it, there no water problem in future to whole belle grama panchayath. MAJI SACHIVARE CILLARE RAJAKIYA BITTU OORINA ABIVRIDDIGE SAHAKARISI.

Dear People of Kaup and Udupi Constituency, please do not believe the politicians. Instead try to find out the facilities and schemes government has. But do not keep the hope on the hopeless leaders. remember 10 years back the same leader who is been seen the picture left out Katpadi Belman road un repaired to take revenge on the Shirva people who did not vote him. After that he never been elected. Politicians know people forget the past soon. So they bring their drama again in front of people and take the "arji" from people. But nothing will be done from these selfish leaders. Better you all go to Udupi Dist admin, and try to find out the solution. When this is done, then may be these leaders will get awakened and do something for you. But do not trust on them first. First People should act.

As a habitual wanderer, occasional trekker and climber myself, I appreciate outdoor fun and frolic of youngsters. Increased disposable incomes, better automobiles, improved access are factors that promote such travels. Credit also goes to technological leap, which enables us to share experiences. While I commend the author both for narration and photos, which I liked, I have to stress on safety and first-aid. Enjoyed a few drinks is not right for such outdoors.

JPH is not right: the trust of people on politicians is reducing? Voter turn out was 66% plus. 88% voted two of parties, who fielded professional politicians, bigger share to JPH. Compare this to 2008 US Presidential elections. Voter turnout=56.8%. The non-professional politicians. Point: JPH wants to get re-elected in 2014. More than gaining trust, important is for fulfilling his promises, working harder and getting results, while being without bias, fear and favoritism. That is minimum.

"Party workers should respond to the problems of common man at the booth level and gain their confidence" Rightly said Mr. Hegde. Looking at the political scenario at our state we can easily make out the lowest confidence level due to infighting, greed and power hungry politicians. It is time for Congress workers at the grass root to work for the common peoples needs and solve their immediate problems, such as land, poverty, electricity shortage, road construction, educational needs and many social needs of the people and gain the confidence to win votes in the future and most importantly for the development of their district to start with.
