UDUPI: Even after the government-sponsored rave party ruined the image of the BJP in the state, St Mary’s Island, which was witness to nudity and drug abuse, remains littered.

Youth Congressmen of Udupi on Friday, as part of a protest performed a ‘Ganahoma’ to purify the island. The Ganahoma performed under the priestship of Sharath Bhat went on for an hour. Udupi Block Congress president Pramod Madhwaraj and others participated in the Ganahoma. Veronica Carnelio said the rave party organised had spoiled its natural beauty. “Ours is just a symbolic protest,” Carnelio added.

The rave party concluded on February 5 but nothing was done to clear the garbage. Cigarette packets, drug rolling sheets, used syringes and condoms were dumped. Attempt was made to spoil the evidence by setting fire most of it remains half-burnt or unburned.
