Mangaluru, July 20, 2015: In the present times when political leaders, particularly elected representatives are known to arrive late for meetings and functions, State Health and Family Welfare Minister UT Khader turned out to be a role model to many by choosing to travel by an autorickshaw to reach a press meet venue on time on July 19, Sunday.
Khader was scheduled to address a press meet at Eden Club at 1 pm on Sunday. As per his prior engagements, Khader celebrated Eid with patients of Psychiatry ward of KS Hegde Hospital and later attended a puja organized by DCC Vice President late Yashwanthi Alva’s family at Kadri Temple. However, when the minister was returning from the temple, his car was held up in the parking area thanks to haphazard parking of vehicle,
Khader who realsied that he would be late for the press meet if he waited there for long immediately boarded an auto and left for Eden Club. He arrived there on time while his official vehicle arrived at the venue almost half an hour late.
