Speaking to media persons, Sorake said that sea erosion has been a huge problem in the coastal districts every year during the monsoon. “The government has been trying its best to provide a permanent solution to this problem for the people living near the seashore. Around Rs 99 crore has been released under the ADB project for construction of a permanent seawall in the Udyavara Padukere and Yermal in Kaup region. The work will commence in the month of September. As a temporary measure, boulders are being laid wherever there is a threat of sea erosion on private properties, plantations and access roads across Kaup constituency,” he said.
