Minister inspects developmental works in City Corporation limits


The minister visited the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at Kavoor, the solid waste management yard at Pacchanady, and inspected the ongoing concreting works of the airport road (beginning from Kuntikan junction), the stretch between the KSRTC bus stand and the Kuntikan junction, and the AB Shetty Circle and Pandeshwar.

He also inspected the road widening works at Ambedkar (Jyothi) Circle in the City where a free-left facility is being provided.

Talking to reporters on the occasion, the minister said his visit is to see that the Rs 100 crore special grant and the State Finance Commission grant given to the City Corporation are spent in a proper manner.
 “Including Mangalore, the major cities are getting good infrastructure, but the necessity of the common man has been neglected. Footpaths should be considered an important component of the city infrastructure,” he suggested.
Suresh Kumar also said he has asked the officials to take sufficient precautionary measures where risky works are going on.

Later he conducted a review meeting with the officials of various departments at the DC’s office.

District-in-Charge Minister J Krishna Palemar, MLA N Yogish Bhat, Mayor M Shanker Bhat, Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj, advisor to the Chief Minister A Ravindra, MCC Commissioner K N Vijayprakash and other officials accompanied the minister.

SMS grievances
The minister told a section of media that he has asked the MCC Commissioner to dedicate a separate cell number to which citizens can send in their complaints in the form of SMS.
