  1. Will the other state labour who is coming udupi to work on sevasindu pass, can they enter Udupi from16 July 2020

  2. Salute to the DC, for his performance. There is more scope for our DC to standout in the entire country not only by performance but by taking brave/humane decisions.

    Even a hotel or bakery or a business would need a few days to plan and shut down but our entire country was shut down in 4 hrs. This decision not only put migrants in trouble, even distributed Corona to every nook and corner of the country. I am sure WHO to be blamed as well.

    The best part of DC’s decision is allowing time for people to move out or move in. If UDUPI hospitals have spare capacity to handle Covid, i strongly suggest that they should open up the borders for our own people. In the end we all know who are the people who want to come and why are they coming here…

    Even enemies are given protection when they surrender. These are our own people who are coming here to save their life. If UDUPI hospitals are running full, then absolutely no problem. DC could openly mention the same and declare the reason for not allowing inflow.
