Mangaluru: The Dakshina Kannada district administration has sought a special package from the state government to shift 33 houses in Belthangady, that are under threat from landslides following the recent rains.

“The hill next to the village, where these houses are located, has developed a crack. The villagers are scared to return to them as the GSI team from Bengaluru that visited the spot, has said there could be landslides here in future. The government must shift them under a special package,” said  deputy commissioner, Sasikanth Senthil, appealing to minister, Kota Srinivas Poojary, who was present at a  meeting to review the flood and rain relief work here on Thursday.

 

The officials concerned explained that land had already been identified near the village to shift the families and all it needed was a green signal from the government.

The district administration has also appealed to the state government to provide a special package for shifting  27 houses in Pachchanady, Mangaluru, where the families living close  to a dumping yard are having a hard time due to a garbage slide on their houses and 45 more houses in Ullal, which are under threat from sea erosion.

Bantwal MLA Rajesh Naik who was the only legislator present at the meeting, suggested the minister consider the loss of trees too in the agricultural fields when providing crop relief to farmers in the region.

In response, Mr Poojary directed the horticulture department to submit  a list of the trees damaged in these parts to the state government.

Meanwhile, the minister, who was concerned about the safety of  children in schools that were flooded, asked the officials concerned to conduct a safety audit of such institutions to make sure that they were not at risk.
