With regard to repair and reconstruction of damaged roads, bridges and other infrastructural requirements, the government will be releasing Rs 50 crore, immediately.”

In order to have a permanent solution to escape any flood-like situation, retaining walls will be constructed in different parts of the district. The government is ready for rehabilitation of 40,000 families who are badly affected by the floods”, he added.
CM BSY visited areas like Rajiv Gandhi layout, Jain Goushala Vidyanagar, and Ramanna Shreshti relief camps.
CM BSY has directed the officers to construct Mangaluru model house for the victims who have lost their houses in several areas of the districts.
As he had visited Rajiv Gandhi layout, he said, “We don’t have proper records so as to who is the owner of the house and who is staying in whose house. Hence I have directed the deputy commissioner to conduct a survey and name such areas as slums. The survey work must be completed within 15-days. If required a retaining wall will be constructed adjacent to the river that flows near the Rajiv Gandhi layout.”
Meanwhile, he visited the Mahaveera Goushala and assessed the situation there. Around 17 cows had died in the floods, pertaining to this goushala.
