Bengaluru: Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has assured houses to the flood affected people of Uttara Kannada district.
A delegation led by Uttara Kannada Bharatiya Janata Party MP Ananth Kumar Hegde met the Chief Minister at his residence and requested him to provide houses to those who had lost them in the recent floods.
“We pleaded with the Chief Minister that records should not come in the way of house allotment to the affected people. Some people have been tilling forest land and do not have proper records, so their pleas must be considered on humanitarian grounds,” Mr Hegde said adding that Mr Yediyurappa had also promised to sanction houses for families from fishermen community who have their dwellings on the banks of rivers.
The Uttara Kannada MP also congratulated the Chief Minister for announcing a Rs 1 crore grant for development of the Halakki community in the district.
