People’s Burning Problems Take A Backseat To Lok Sabha Polls

Bengaluru: The people of Karnataka are reeling under a series of burning problems to no avail but none of the contesting parties or their representatives seems to be perturbed over the alarming predicament. Interestingly even the voters or the general public appear to be least perplexed over the serious development adversely affecting their normal life and livelihood. Not a subject for discussion: But for a few letters in the Letters to the Editor columns of some regional language newspapers anyone going through their online editions sitting elsewhere across the globe is bound to form an opinion that everything is well in their home state. However, the situation on the ground is quite paradoxical and worrisome. Soaring mercury…: March 2024 remained exceptionally dry in the whole of the state while Mercury roared to 36.6 degrees centigrade dubbed to be the highest since 2019 and none of the 16 India Metrological Department (IMD) observatories in South Karnataka recorded any rainfall.
