  1. Dear readers,

    Why there is no fire fighting system installed in the building?

    How does ‘Corporation’ and ‘Fire Department’ cleared the licence for such business. How the insurance companies cover the policy without fire system in place.

    Really, Mangalore city listed in ‘Smart city’ which is only famous for ‘moral policing’ by saffron terror?

    Jai hind
