MLA Nalin Kumar Kateel, also at the meeting, stated that under no circumstances will the border entry points into Karnataka from Kerala will be opened. He further added that they are discussing conditional openings of the border, however, people must not fear anything. Kateel explained that due to an increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in neighbouring Kerala the border was sealed to prevent the entry of people from there into Dakshina Kannada district. The priority right now is the safety of the district's residents and any measure for it will be taken.
