'Why builders can't beautify City?'

BJP says MCC will study 24x7 water supply system

Addressing a press meet here on Tuesday, he said instead of inviting tender for the implementation of 24X7 water supply, the MCC will outsource needed staff and maintain the water supply system.

“After the BJP came to power in the MCC, as many as 17 main roads have been concreted. Tender has been invited for laying footpaths and drains in the already concreted road. Owing to the shortage of contractors to take up the work on footpaths and drains, District-in-Charge Minister Krishna Palemar has decided to take the help of builders in the process of beautification of the City. If builders are involving themselevs in the process of development, then what is the problem?” he asked. From the time of municipality, the Congress was ruling. During the Congress reign, no roads were developed and was engaged themselves in borrowing loans.

Stating that former MLA is trying to level false allegeation against the BJP rule in the MCC, he said his statements are an attempt to mislead the citizens. How much development work he has carried out when he was MLA of Surathkal? he asked.

Flaying MCC opposition leader Lancelot Pinto for stating that several files are pending for the regularisation of buildings, he said “though the state government has brought in a bill on Akrama-Sakrama, the bill is still pending before the Governor.”

Roads

The dispute with Geological Survey of India in Mangalore, on completion of concrete road at Pandeshwar has been solved. The work on completing the concrete road will be carried out within a week. Tender has been invited to take up the work on asphaltation of the road from Jyothi to Bunts Hostel. The work on filling the potholes on the stretch will commence within 10 days, said Whip in the MCC Sudheer Shetty.

Every corporator is given additional Rs 25 lakh to carry out development work in their ward. If they fail to implement any work, then they are responsible, Bhandary added.

Bus bays

Mayor Praveen said that six bus bays will come up in Mangalore City Corporation limits. The bus bays will come up in front of University College, Nanthoor Junction, Light House, in front of C V Nayak hall, Valencia, Mangaladevi.

Bejai market

To a query on delay in the completion of Bejai market, Corporator Premananda Shetty said that a sum of Rs 50 lakh has been released for the market. The work on ground floor would be completed by December and the vendors will be asked to occupy by January or February by providing all the infrastructure facilities.
