Raitha Sangha seeks compensation for flood victims

Members of Karnataka Raitha Sangha staged a protest seeking compensation for flood victims, in Madikeri on Friday.

Demanding compensation, rehabilitation and land, Karnataka Raitha Sangha district committee members staged a protest in the city on Friday.

The members vented their ire against the district administration on the occasion.

Raitha Sangha State Secretary Nirvanappa said that the North Karnataka districts are affected by severe drought. “The people have been migrating to other regions after a huge crop loss. Also, the districts in Malnad area have been affected by floods and landslides. But, the government has not taken enough measures to compensate the victims,” he added.

He further alleged that the relief materials have not reached the needy. 

“There is a need to put an end on resort culture in the district. Land mafia, forest mafia and mining should be curbed. The dependents of those who have lost their lives during landslides should be
provided with a compensation of Rs 10 lakh, while the wounded should be provided with Rs 2 lakh. The compensation amount being disbursed currently is inadequate,” Nirvanappa said and also added that the district administration should provide lands to those who have lost their houses.

Alleging that a false case has been registered against him in connection with clashes in Valmiki Bhavan in Kushalnagar, Nirvanappa urged the authorities to withdraw the complaint and suspend Tahsildar Mahesh.

Leaders K T Anand, Sannappa, M M Siddaiah, district unit president Manjunath and BSP leader Monnappa were part of the protest.
