Speaking to reporters at Circuit House on March 9, Monday, Khader said  once all the remaining 570 families get gas connections, Ullal will also be the first town to have 100 per cent gas connection in the district.

On the H1N1 scare, the minister informed that  almost 80 per cent of patients have recovered and attributed the few deaths due to H1N1  to the delay in medication. He said the H1N1 tests are done free of cost at NIMHANS and Manipal Hospital in Bengaluru.

He also informed that a five member committee led by Dr Paramessh is  looking into measures that could be taken to prevent spread of H1N1.

Khader further stated that a sum of Rs 19.86 crores has been sanctioned under Namma Grama Namma Aasthi scheme for development of rural roads including the Balepuni-Narya road, Kurnad Junction-Kodakkal road, Sarapady-Devipura road and Sajipanadu-Kanchinadkapadavu road.

Referring to the Union Budget, Khader said it only favoured the corporates while not helping the poor.

Several Congress leaders were present at the press meet.
