shobha-karandlajeUdupi: Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlanje visited nine-year old Nidhi’s home who lost her life due to heavy rains and paid condolence to the family members here.

“As Nidhi was short and the water was too high, she got washed away. After many years, we witnessed this kind of rain. Earlier, water used to pass easily and go into sea. The child could have been saved even if there were safety poles on both sides of the road,” she said.

Addressing the media, the MP said, “We have asked the DC to take proper measures and undertake precautionary measures. Money will be given from relief fund to the family of Nidhi and Sheela, a gram panchayat member from Karkala who died on Monday after lightening struck her. For the next three months, there will be continuous rain in the district. Hence, those who have lost their houses must be provided proper facility to stay,” she said.

“Rs 4 lakh compensation has been announced for the family from disaster relief fund. Immediate action will be taken to repair the roads. National highway extension work in Padubidri will be completed soon.

Kaup MLA Lalaji R Mendon, district BJP president Mattaru Rathnakar Hegde, and Geethanjali Suvarna, zilla panchayat vice-president Sheela Shetty were present.
