Mangaluru, Jan 30, 2019: Mangaluru South MLA Vedavyas Kamath has dubbed the recent padayatra taken out by the Congress to protest against the incomplete flyover projects at Thokkottu and Pumpwell, as a ’Street Play.’
Speaking to reporters here on January 29, Tuesday, he blamed the Congress for the delay in the project and claimed that the recommendation to change the plan of the Pumpwell flyover during the tenure of J R Lobo as MLA and Oscar as Union Minister had caused further delay.
Congress leaders who are in the race for a Lok Sabha ticket are making this an issue now that elections are nearing, he alleged.
Defending party MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, he said the MP has tried his level best to expedite the project by even meeting the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.
He challenged the Congress to highlight at least one successful NH project during UPA rule.
