Mangalore, July 29, 2014: Speaking to media on Tuesday July 29, Minister for Health and Family Welfare, U T Khader said in spite of CM assuring needed probes in Arkavathi De-notification issue, the opposition did not listen and blocked the business of the assembly. During question hour speaker had promised to give opportunity to discuss the matter. But the opposition created unnecessary chaos in the assembly, he said.
