He warned that if the hospital was not approved soon, he would boycott the assembly elections. Local people said that although the geographical area of the district is huge, there is not a single multi-specialty or super-specialty hospital available to the public.
People have to go to Goa, Hubli, Udupi and Mangaluru for emergency treatment. Demand for the hospital has increased following the death of 4 people in Honavar in the district on July 20.
The protesters said that they will continue to write letters to Modi in blood until their demands are met.
