Residents' rally to demand Kadamakal-Galibeedu road repair

The long-pending demand of the people of Subrahmanya and Madikeri is development of Kadamakal -Galibeedu road. With the development of the road, the pilgrims can reach Subrahmanya and Dharmasthala at a shorter distance.

However, owing to the negligence of the government and stiff opposition by the environmentalists, the demand for the road has remained a dream.

Urging the government to take up the work on the road, the residents of Subrahmanya, Ainekidu, Harihara, Balugodu, Kollamogru, Kalmakaru, Kadamakal began their jatha to Madikeri on Friday.

Senior member Joyappa Dambekodi flagged off the jatha at Kadamakal School premises. More than 500 residents who had gathered at the venue shouted slogans urging the government to take up the work on the road. The jatha will culminate at A B School premises in Mahadeva pete in Madikeri.  

Kadamakal-Madikeri road was existing 200- 300 years ago. The road is mentioned in the map of the British. Even the forest and revenue department’s documents show the existence of the road. However, the environmentalists are conspiring to set up sanctuary.

Hamid Idnoor said that the development of the road will not affect the environment.
Senior member of the village Y P Prabhakar Yaladalu said that the people of Subrahmanya were walking to Madikeri using the road 50 years ago. The same road leads to Tappal in Madikeri. The road was developed through shramadaan in 1994.

Subrahmanya resident Subbaiah A K said that the stretch will provide easy connectivity to Subrahmanya. The pilgrims from Madikeri-Galibeedu were taking part in Subrahmanya temple annual fair in the past. The people of the region will be benefited if the road was developed, he added.
