Baliga had questioned a number of builders for violation of the rules out of interest for the citizens, but a few of us raised our voices on his behalf. He had also questioned the management of the school near by his home because they blocked the road by parking and they had also violated the laws by building nearly twice the area that was sanctioned, said Narendra Nayak

He further said that, Baliga wanted the streets to be sewage free as a large complex of nearly 360 flats near his home had not put up a sewage treatment plant as required under the law and it has still not become functional, but no one living on that road condemned his murder.

The temples are commercialized and funds of the temples do not have an account sometimes. They keep it as a secret,do not want to make it public. Keep one thing in mind the funds are the public ’s offering towards God and do not misuse . The devotees trust and fear towards God never let them speak against such.

Why are the people so silent in the murder of Baliga? Fir the simple clash between the community they drag it and make big issue but in this case why not a single person except professor nobody dare to fight for the case. Very strange.
