Palemar MeetingMangalore : The second round of meeting chaired by district in-charge minister Krishna J Palemar, MLA Yogish Bhat and Mayor Praveen was held at DC Court on September 26, Monday to discuss about the development of roads in city limits with the help of builders.

The infrastructural work from KPT to Maravoor stretch will be made as model road and the work will begin from October 6 and will be completed in the 6 months time.

Palemar also said that though the road work is done by MCC, the builder’s co-operation has been sought since there is lack of engineers and labourers.

Out of the grant of Rs 100-crore sanctioned by the state government were utilized for the development of only main roads, while work related to footpath, drainage, and placing of electricity poles were kept pending.

Criticizing the statement given by former MLA Vijaykumar Shetty, Palemar said that if the MCC do not utilize the government fund on time, it will be elapsed, hence this method of involving builders is used for the overall development of the city and not intended to benefit builders.

After the infrastructural work of KPT to Maravoor stretch, other 23 roads in the city of about 35-km stretch will be developed with the materials supplied by government agency ‘Nirmithi Kendra’.

Further giving details on it, he said that the cost of the road work will be given by the government and builders will only have responsibility to provide the labour force.

Corporator Ranganath Kini said that the KMC administration approved to look after the overall cost used for the development of the KMC 6th and 7th cross road in Attavar.
