it is a known fact that all illegal activities that happen in tourist areas happen with the blessings of the local MLA and the police and even higher ups in the government.
The occasional busts happen mostly because the police needs to show that they are during their duty to curb flesh trade.
The gram sabha can take matters into their hands rather then saying that the police are not doing their duty. Form a ‘watchdog’ committee and expose these places. Does the Sarpanch have the courage to do this with the people is to be seen?
