An illegal cable racket in Kundapur

Posted on Aug 21st, 2012 and filed under Special Report.

KUNDAPUR : An illegal cable racket is operative throughout Kundapur taluk wherein cable operators have no hesitation in making use of electric poles and telephone poles to provide cable connections to TVs.

People are wondering why the authorities have turned a blind eye when they have no hesitation in questioning a poor man even if he tied his cattle to some telephone pole. In some places, it has also been noticed that the cable operators were using even the side drain system to lay cables, in turn resulting in clogging and creating problems during monsoon.

The residents of the town are hoping the authorities would take note of this problem seriously and do the needful.
