Mangalore, Nov 16: The central government has sanctioned Rs 4 crore to undertake temporary road repair work at Shiradi Ghat, and the National Highway authority will start the work in a week,” said district in-charge minister B Ramanath Rai.

Speaking at the press meet held at his new office at DC Office premises on November 16, Saturday, he said that the local MP who is responsible to undertake the initiative of road work is playing a political gimmick, hence Transport minister Oscar Fernandes has taken an initiative to undertake the work.

He also said that the people of Chattisgarh praised their chief minister Raman Singh and honoured him with a title ‘Chaval Wala Babu’ for giving 1 kg rice at Rs 2, but the people of Karnataka never appreciated CM Siddaramaih even after giving rice at Rs 1.


After Congress government came to power in state, it has launched various pro-people works especially giving importance to poor section of the society. Even then opposition leaders point out on our mistakes, which is not proper, he said.
