Mangaluru, Dec 01, 2017: Ivan D’Souza, MLC and Chief Whip of State Legislative Council has alleged that  Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel has completely neglected the National Highway 169 passing through Mangaluru and Karkala via Moodbidri.

Addressing press persons at his office at MCC building here on December 1, Friday, he said  though the  erstwhile State Highway was upgraded into a National Highway  20 years ago, except for a  signboard mentioning it as Highway nothing much has been done.

"The Gurupur bridge enroute is in a sorry state. Even the NITK experts have   reported that the bridge is unfit for vehicular traffic. Still no effort has been made  by the MP to develop the road," Ivan complained.

"The four-laning of the road would take another two years. The road at least needs a  repair. The NH Authority has submitted a proposal of Rs 17.50 crores in this regard to the Centre. But the MP is making no effort to see to it that the funds are sanctioned," alleged Ivan.
