Mangalore, July 15: Mangalore North MLA B.A. Moidin Bava who visited the sea erosion affected areas at Meenakaliya in Baikampady on July 14, Monday.
He expressed his displeasure over the contractors on noticing that the boulders dumped to prevent erosion, have landed in the sea. “The unscientific way in which boulders were dumped was the reason for the problem,” he said.
Officials as well as contractors present on the occasion tried to clarify that they had dumped boulders just as a precautionary measure to prevent the problem from worsening though it was not possible to dump boulders in a scientific manner.
Raghuveer Panambur, local corporator, Harish Baikampady and port officials were present.
