Mangaluru, May 27, 2015: With elections to the Gram Panchayats just a couple of days away, the situation is hotting up just like mercury levels are soaring. In a latest development, Mangaluru North BA Moidin Bava has lashed out at former MLA of the constituency and former minister Krishna Palemar and has alleged that the latter was misleading the public through false statements.
Speaking to reporters here on May 26, Tuesday, Bava also challenged Palemar for an open debate on the progress works taken up in the constituency by him since the past two years.
