Kodava Students' Association (KSA) in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts have decided to collect and send relief material to Kodagu, which has been ravaged by heavy rains and floods in the last few days.

The materials would be collected from the public at SDM law college here from 9 AM to 5 PM today and tomorrow, KSA advisor S P Chnegappa said in a statement.

Clothes, medicines, food items, blankets, tooth paste, brush and other items would be collected and sent to Kodagu district, where rains have claimed six lives so far and many people have been reported missing.

He said the state government, which had announced Rs 100 crore as relief to Kodagu, should enhance the amount and requested the people of DK and Udupi to contribute generously towards relief measures in Kodagu.
