Kodagu district heaves sigh of relief

Majority of people welcomed the verdict with due respect and no instance of raging against the Court’s decision reported in the district. People were seen walking on streets in the town in the evening after the pronouncement of the verdict without any fear or tension. Policemen, who were deployed to maintain law and order, too could work without vexation.

While schools and colleges remained closed, the number of tourists to the district reduced considerably. Very less number of vehicles entered the district from outside.

Though most of the shops remained open in Madikeri, their business was affected severely.

The district administration had promulgated prohibitory orders under Section 144 in the district.

Additional forces were also deployed at selected places, which were identified as sensitive spots by the police. Police geared up to face any kind of situation. However, no untoward incidents were reported at any place in the district.

Apprehension over

The district administration, police and people were apprehensive about the court verdict as few days are left for major festivals including Madikeri Dasara and the famous Talacauvery Theerthodbava to light up the district in fervour.

It was a challenge for the district administration and police and they had prepared a well planned strategy to maintain law and order.

As no untoward incidents followed after the delivery of Allahabad High Court verdict, the burden of the district administration and police too has been reduced.

Communal clashes, which break the unity among communities, had never reported so far in the history of Kodagu as majority of people in the district are peace-lovers. They continued their tradition of loving peace even on the day of Allahabad High Court verdict pronouncement.
