Speaking to reporters at the District Congress Office on May 1, Wednesday, Lobo described as irresponsible  the  statement of the MLA that the ADB aided Rs 160 crore  first phase project was sub-standard.

 Lobo said he wanted to know as to what Kamath as MLA has done to solve the water problem in the past one year.

He pointed out  that  20%  of the water supplied from Thumbay to Mangaluru was lost enroute due to pilferage. Moreover there is also  leakage in the old PVC pipe that supplied  water within the city. If the water supply system was implemented as per KUDCEMP original plan then pilferage could have been reduced to 10%, he added.

He also  stated that the new vented dam at Thumbay was approved when Kumaraswamy  was the and not during the tenure  of Yeddyurappa as stated by Kamath. He also pointed out that  it was possible to store water upto six meter in the dam  after getting sanctioned Rs 30 crore as compensation to ht affected though  there was a necessity of Rs 120 crore  to pay compensation if water is to be stored upto 7 meters.

Former mayor Bhasker K, former corporator Naveen D’Souza, A C  Vinayraj and others were present.
