Belthangadi: Once upon a time there was a need to restore dilapidated temples and celebrate Brahmakashotsava.

There are students till now. Besides, the infrastructure is twice as much as that of private schools. Some schools in the taluk are on the verge of closing due to lack of students and lack of basic facilities. For this, the people of the village should be determined to develop in the manner of the village. Associations can see how the development of the village can be seen in the associations of Balanja, Sarvodaya Friends Club is a model for the state of social service, he said.
