Mangaluru, July 17, 2018: MLC Ivan D’Souza has launched a tirade against Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and has questioned as to why we need an MP who could not complete just 45 km of road work. While saying so Ivan was referring to the mess on the National Highway 66 due to incomplete works that have led to several accidents.
Speaking to reporters at his office on July 16, Monday, he said the unscientific work at Pumpwell, Nantur, Kottara Chowki and Mulki has led to the flow of rain water on the road instead of drain. Toll is collected despite completion of the work and the MP is helpless, he said.
He also warned of a protest by blocking the highway if the works were not completed at the earliest.
