Udupi, August 11, 2020: State Home Minister and Udupi District in-charge minister Basavaraj Bommai has said that the government was contemplating to undertake a geo-mapping  through the  Geological Survey Department  of India in order to avert incidents like landslides in the environmentally sensitive areas of the Western Ghats.

He was speaking to reporters after inspecting the damage caused  due to sea erosion at Padubidri on August 11, Tuesday. The Minister said during the video conference held with the PM on Monday, an appeal was put forth  to release additional grants to check sea erosion and  measures to prevent landslide in the ghat areas. He said assistance was also sought to provide rehabilitation to displaced families.

He said the allegation that the Centre was not favourably responding to Karnataka’s demand relating to Covid and flood problems, were far from truth. 

The  Udupi district administration already has Rs 3.5 crores  under Natural Calamity Relief Fund and an additional Rs 10 crores will be released for emergency works and for flood relief in the next two to three days, he said.
