Nothing doing . See doubling between Cental and Netravathi was pending since 15 years. Doubling from Netravathi to Trivandrum completed 10 years back but this 1.5 KM is held up till now. 4 th 5 th Platform is only day dream for Mangalureans. If Mangalore was in Kerala there MPs would have done in 24 hours like Calicut Cochin and Trivandrum. Karnataka MPs are good for pocketing salaries,
