It would be wonderful if Mr Lobo will put out a map of Mangalore South MLA jurisdiction and on that map have the five lakes that are to be restored superimposed on it.After all, citizens would like to know where these lakes were, their status today, the capacity of each of them and how the embankments for them will be constructed. Trust this is an economical project and not just a political gimmick.
