My proposal is the only alternative:It is impossible to implement any project when local residents are opposing it. We have seen the problems earlier on Mysore - Areacode power grid line and we already knew Kodagu people were opposing the Mysore - Madikeri railway project. I do not know what made our government to propose this Thalassery rail through Kodagu.
The only option is the connectivity to Nanjangud with underground tunnel to cross the national park. If the forest officials and environmental activists are still concerned, let them prove to the court how the tunnel will harm the forests.
