Udupi, 20 June 2011: Higher Education and Udupi District Supervisory Minister Dr. V. S. Acharya has announced the proposal of building a permanent wall to prevent sea erosion. He visited Udyavara Padukare area and inspected the sea erosion on Sunday evening. Later he spoke to the press reporters. As per him, the proposal is under discussion and for this 980 crore rupees loan will be taken from the World Bank. From this 300 crores will be for Dakshina kannada and remaining 680 crores will be spent for building Udupi district coastal stop wall. If this proposal gets approved then the work will start by 2012 and will finish by 2015.




This time the erosion has taken place at Udupi district; Udyavara padukare, Kanakoda, Koplu, Kadethota and Kuthyadi altogether about 1105 meter length. Minister said that to prevent this temporarily, instructions are given to the officers to arrange to put rocks in these places. Along with the minister Kaup MLA Lalaji Mendon, Jilla Panchayath President Katapadi Shankara Poojary, Udyavara Grama Panchayath President Prema Margaret, Port – Fisheries Department Executive Engineer P.

I am reading this type of reports for last 15 - 20 years. Every year new promises, new projects and more crores. But where these crores are going and where are the projects implimented. Sea erosion is continuing every year. Unless we have a scientific approach of control and unless people rise against these corrupt leaders, we will not have any solution to this problem.
