  1. Good to note that Mr. Vinay Kumar Sorake has declared his intention of developing infrastructure for Kaup, now being his constituency and also an MLA.

    While he was Udupi District In-Charge, people were very hopeful for some basic improvements – but he was prematurely removed from his post and replaced by Mr Pramod Madhwaraj. for example, the main road that houses the Circuit House and the Office of Urban Development of Udupi District, The Udupi District Police HQ, and the Taluk Office now, has been just left out like a bi-lane with no foot-path for the numerous people working for the Taluk Office and other Govt. offices situated there, as well as for the people who have to visit these offices to obtain Ration Card, Aadhar Card, Marriage Certificates, etc. The most trying period is during the monsoon season – when it becomes impossible to walk in the mud path and being exposed to the hazardous with the road full of potholes.

    Things should be more regulated in India, rather than dependent on Politicians for basic infrastructure and amenities. There are Ministry of Public Works, The Municipality, Ministry of Electricity & Water, which have to be pushed or instructed by Politicians to act to do get their job done. Like the CM of Karnataka now putting out a demand that all main road potholes in Bangalore to be repaired within 15 days! Then there is the question of funds, that are promised but seldom delivered, or if delivered, siphoned elsewhere, and then begins the same old cycle – scams and the Politicians being involved. The favoured Contractors often complain that they are not paid by the government to carry out the contracted jobs.

    This should never be the case – as then it becomes a party and politician dictate! That again becomes voting criteria and the related period when the 2 main political parties give big talks of doing this and doing that, and giving this and giving that, etc.
