Speaking to mangalorean.com one of the tenant said that we are staying in this house from many years. We do not have much income to pay high rent. The sudden order to demolish the house has put us in trouble as we do not have any other place to live.
Due to the lack of unity among the tenants the judgement has been in favor of the owner said another tenant. The tenants did not allow to demolish the houses, discussions are going on to find a amicable solution to the problems.
