    I want to highlight the open secret that evenyone in our beloved DK district talks, The 'SPONSOR' of this 'SAMITHI' is into 'ELECTRICAL CONTRACTING' business. The Coal Based power plant coming up in Nandikoor is giving his company contracts revenue worth 'MANY CRORES'. Now I urge the respected readers to join the dots and now decide why thie SAMITHI has been pushing this project from start and not any environmental friendly IT projects or even MRPL project.

    I think this Samiti has 2 tongue attitude, they protested the project initialy, after sometime they will change the way they have thought. why this happens..? People should understand this. Everybody is doing everything for something. Now where is so called environmental protection..? When they got thier needs fulfilled by the company, now they are supporting. Now they enjoy with employment oppotunity for their near and dear ones. Very nice the DK, you are great...!!!

Save undivided DAKSHINA KANNADA.

    Mr.Shetty,Coal based power plant will not cause any harm to members of this Association,as they do not live close to the plant. They will reap the fruits of profit from far and eat in Grand Hotel,while local people will eat Ganji and die with lung illness. They will walk on Marine Drive under clear skies breathing fresh air.Locals will walk in smog created by effluents out of plant stack and fly dust, breathing foul smell with high humidity.

    How many of members hold Stock Options in Power plant. I just wonder,who paid the Hotel Bill,and for publicity. They boast of lot of industry in coastal area but no road to travel. They are only looking at one side of coin.

    District is desecrated by the so called environmentalists. Thank you for putting a stop to this menace. The citizens are with you please go ahead and put you best efforts forward and make our District a developed and liveable district. Today it is only a money order economy living off income earned from some where else. Shame on all of us for supporting environmentalists and vested interest funded by international crooks to keep our district undeveloped.

    Supporting coal based thermal powerplant, which is highly causing environmental pollution,by a samithi"parisara premi"is like damaging their own cause.
