DYFI stages stir against MCC

DYFI members submitting memorandum to the MCC officials in Mangalore on Monday.

DYFI District President Muneer Katipalla said that contractors in the city are reluctant to take up development works because of the corrupt practices prevailing in MCC. “Council members and officials are bothered about the percentage of share they can earn  through the contracts for development works. They have no concern for the city and its development,” Katipalla said.

He said that while crores of rupees have been spent to develop city roads, the corporation has conveniently ignored interior roads in the City limits. “The major ‘achievements’ of BJP-led MCC are the anti-poor city development plan and the hike in the water supply tariff.
The billing process for the water supply in the City has been handed over to private agency thereby leaving consumers in a fix. Even though there were several complaints with regard to excessive billing, the City Corporation could not address the same,” he said and added that BJP corporators are more concerned about the State politics than the real problems of the poor in the City.

“Citizens of Mangalore chose the BJP with lot of hopes but now the people are being punished indirectly through negligent attitude of corporators and officials,” he charged. A procession was taken out from Jail Road to the MCC Office.
