Mangaluru, Nov 19, 2018 : BJP corporators of Mangaluru boycotted the MCC Development Committee meeting held on November 19 to protest against what they termed as a deliberate act of not inviting the BJP MLAs of Mangaluru North and South constituencies.
Opposition leader in MCC Premanand Shetty who spoke to reporters at the party office pointed out that 38 out of the 60 wards of Mangaluru came under the Mangaluru South and the rest 22 in Mangaluru North. Still the MLAs of these two constituencies have not been invited to ensure meaningful discussions at the meeting, he alleged.
He was also critical of DK District in-charge Minister UT Khader for not convening meeting to review MCC developmental works at least once in a month.
BJP Corporators Sudhir Shetty Kannur and Ganesh Hosabettu were also present.
