Got Condoms/Nirodh! ‘Kadri Skating Rink’ has become ‘Kadri Mating Rink’?
Mangaluru: If you happen to enter into the Government Horticulture Department property, where a Kadri Skating Rink/Hi-Flyers Skating Club which once existed has become a haven for illegal activities, ranging from drug peddling, prostitution, Sex activity; and Homosexuality, with fake transgenders hanging around late in the evening. Lakhs of rupees spent on beautification of this Govt Horticulture Department property is all in shambles, with thick grass grown all round, trees/grass being burned- and the worst part is that you’ll find hundreds of used condoms/wrappers (Nirodh, Manforce, Durex, Skore brands), and also empty liquor bottles, chewing tobacco etc. What a shame to this Smart City, when government property is being neglected and has been allowed to be used by people to deal in illegal activities, including sex.
Due to lack of toilet facility, the park is also being used as an open toilet, by a bunch of street vendors from out of town doing their illegal business on the side of the Highway. Even though the timing says on the board at the entrance is 5:00 pm-6:30 pm, but there is no one to restrict the said timings- and the best part is that the gate is open 24 hours, 365 days? At night, the area is being used for three things—prostitution, homosexuality and drug peddling, say some of these street vendors who have occupied the nearby area. The illegal activity in this government-owned area was highlighted and posted on social media by social activist and volunteer with Ramakrishna Swachh Mangaluru Abhiyan, Sowraj. His video has gone viral, receiving thousands of hits. (watch the video at the end of this report)
Rumours are that people using the Govt Horticulture Department area for all these illegal activities have hand in hand with the police, so they get away easily without facing any trouble with the law. What a Smart City are we living in? With Mangaluru East Police station located just a few metres away from this haven of illegal activities, seems like the cops don’t give a damn as to what is going on there. Simply useless to have a police department close to a place where illegal activities are going on and no action taken. bah humbug!
Speaking to Team Mangalorean activist Sowraj said, “In my video, I am speaking in Tulu for the reason so that only our locals should know as to what’s dirty things are happening in our Government Horticulture Department property, and people from other states. It’s a mess inside this govt property, filled with hundreds of used condoms/wrappers, empty liquor/water bottles, human and stray animals feces, etc etc. Just imagine a government-owned property looking like a dump yard, with taxpayers money going down the drain. With lakhs of rupees spent to beautify this place, this is what the place looks like. If they are not using the skating rink, let them convert this land into a nice playground so that children can benefit out of it”.
“Is this the facility what the government is giving to its citizens using taxpayers money. With all the condoms and garbage scattered all over the area, makes one wonder if the Government Horticulture Department officials are dead or alive. It’s indeed a shame to see all these nasty condoms, which will send a bad message to the children who walk by. Even the cops who travel by those new police beat cars, simply ignore and drive by. Then why do we have police beat at night, if they don’t take action? This is not a hidden thing, the mess is seen openly, with few steps away from the entrance gate. Instead of allowing this humongous area for illegal activities, the government can utilize this place for something worth, like a playground, rather than opening a skating rink which lasted only for some time. I urge the citizens to raise their voices on this issue so that the Government Horticulture Department officials taking a nap would wake and do the needful, something worthwhile” added Sowraj.
In conclusion, in my perspective, if the Government Horticulture Department officials act quick and turning around this shabby place into a better place, it would benefit many. Right now it has apparently turned into an eyesore of the Smart Coastal City. People are being forced to keep away from such places full of greenery and pure nature because of certain alleged nefarious activities that are taking place there in full public view. Prostitutes, mainly fake transgenders, soliciting customers has become a routine affair here. The Horticulture Department, that maintains the land, and the police do not seem to have taken the issue seriously. One street vendor said this is a haven for the eunuchs soliciting customers, and many drunkards, who, many a time, are seen consuming liquor openly. This is also a centre for drug addicts. Sadly there is no authority to check the unlawful activities that take place there. Hope this Team Mangalorean exclusive report and activist Sowraj’s video will bring a change to this place. Hope so?
