Youth and social organisations should join hands with the government in this regard.” He also conveyed his wishes on Press Day and Doctors’ Day saying that while doctors cure diseases, journalists cure social diseases affecting society.

  1. PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
    DOCTORS CURE DISEASES!
    DOCTORS DO NOT CURE DISEASES! DOCTOR’S DIAGNOSE DISEASES.
    CORRECT DIAGNOSES AND RIGHT MEDICATION AND THE HAND OF GOD CURES A PERSON
    OF ANY DISEASE

    WE MUST KEEP THE SURROUNDINGS CLEAN
    IF THE STAFF IN CHARGE IN THE MUNICIPALITIES OF MANGALORE AND UDUPI ARE
    NOT WALKING THE STREETS AND SIMPLY TALKING TO THE MEDIA, THE STREETS
    AND SURROUNDINGS CANNOT BECOME CLEAN.
    DAILY OBSERVATION AND ACTION IS WHAT IS REQUIRED.

    THE CM HAS ASKED IN HIS RECENT RESHUFFLE OF HIS CABINET
    FOR THE PEOPLE IN AUTHORITY NOT TO SIT IN THEIR AIRCONDITIONED OFFICES BUT TO
    MAN THE STREETS.

    YOU CANNOT BECOME A DISTRICT-INCHARGE WITHOUT WALKING THE DISTRICT!
    VINAY KUMAR SORAKE WENT FOR TOO MANY INAUGURATIONS INSTEAD OF WALKING THE
    DISTRICTS AND KEEPING IT SPICK AND SPANK AND IT COST HIM HIS JOB!
