9:08 PM, Wednesday, September 1st, 2021

ut KhaderMangaluru : MLA U T Khader alleged that sand is being illegally transported to Kerala despite strict surveillance on the border.

The illegal transportation of sand is carried out unabated, he told media persons and questioned the district administration for failing to act against illegal sand transporters.

On one hand, the government has made RT-PCR negative certificate mandatory for those arriving from Kerala, on the other hand illegal transportation of sand is allowed, he alleged.

He urged the government to frame foolproof Covid-19 guidelines which can be implemented effectively.

The district administrations and health departments of Dakshina Kannada and Kasaragod districts should convene a coordination meeting, Khader demanded.

Stating that there is shortage of staff especially nurses and ambulance drivers in the district, he said that the service of 108 ambulance has been affected in the district.

Though the government has launched mobile applications for the convenience of accredited social health activists (ASHA), they have not been provided with smartphones, Khader said.
