Udupi, Mar 14,2017:Speaking at the ‘Panchayat Nade – Koraga Samudayadege’ organised by the Alevoor Gram Panchayat, Udupi Deputy Commissioner Priyanka Mary Francis, said that Udupi is a leader in the human index report. “But, atrocities on Dalits are a history.
There is a need to eradicate derogatory practices like untouchability. Houses for Koragas through ITDP must be a priority. Koragas should work under the MGNREGS to earn Rs 22,000 annually,” she said.
