Mangaluru, March 17, 2020: Environmental activists who were agitated over the axing of a few tree branches merely because they were an obstacle to a few hoardings near Kadri Park, have ripped apart a few flex banners on Monday.
The branches of three trees near the Kadri Park were cut as they were an obstacle to the hoardings. Agitated over this the National Environment Care Federation activists have torn apart two huge flex banners and also another flex banner nearby.
"As many as six flex banners have been torn. The portrait of MP Nalin Kumar Kateel has been pointed back and Jai Netravathi was written on the banner by activists. Similar banners in other places too would meet the same fate," said Federation Convenor Shashidhar Shetty.
