DV takes part in annual nemotsava at his home in Devaragunda

Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said that the third phase of work on Mani-Mysore State Highway from Sampaje to Mani will be completed by May 31.

Speaking to presspersons during his visit to Devaragunda to take part in ‘annual nemotsava’ on Tuesday, he said: “We can not tolerate slow progress in work. The work on road from Sampaje to Sullia will be carried out by RN Nayak company instead of KMC Constructions.

The work on road from Sullia to Sampaje will be carried out by KMC Constructions. A sum of Rs 3 crore has been given in advance to complete the work.” He said special package of Rs 50 crore has been given to Dakshina Kannada district. Highest amount has been allocated to Sullia constituency.

In fact, former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa had announced Rs 75 crore for the development of Muroor bridge, Sullia-Subrahmanya road, Sullia-Mandekolu road, Bellippady road, Aranthodu-Thodikana road. All these work have been included in the appendix. Work worth Rs 2,125 crore has been included in the appendix in the entire state. All the work will be taken up after the budget. There is no question of pending the work which have been announced,” he said.

“The political situation in the State has made me take charge of almost all the departments. I review the progress of 38 departments. Making the officials work is an art by itself. I will not threaten the officials to get the work done. The officials should not become scapegoat for the politics of hatredness,” he said.

“The transfers affect the development work. No officials from lower rung will be transferred till April,” he added.  Earlier, Sullia Government First Grade College Development Committee members urged the CM to release additional fund for the new building, to which, the CM promised to release Rs 2.5 crore.
