As rain recedes, the life in Kodagu is slowly limping back to normalcy,  and the work on Mani-Mysuru highway is in progress. If everything goes well, the stretch is likely to be opened for light vehicles within 20 days, said Kodagu DC P I Srividya.

“It will take time for the heavy vehicle traffic on the stretch,” she said after visiting Aranthodu relief camp.

The work on the Mani -Mysuru (Sampaje Ghat) highway is in progress. The 14-km stretch from Jodupala is fully damaged. If the restoration work moves in the same speed, then light vehicles can be allowed on the stretch within 20 days, she said.

The flood and landslide victims from Jodupala, who are still living at relief centre at Sampaje, are eager to rebuild their lives.

The victims with the help of volunteers are engaged in repairing their houses. “I owned 150 coffee plants, of which 50 plants have been washed away. I am making an effort to retain the remaining plants,” said Cariappa Gowda of Monnangeri.

Another victim Musthafa said, “Majority of the victims are trying to get the lost documents. The officials are responding to our woes. But they are not keen on providing a copy of land related documents.”
