Mangaluru, Sep 27, 2018: State Minister for Urban Development and Housing and DK District in-charge Minister U T Khader has assured that Dasara holidays for schools will not be cut short this year. He said a decision in this regard has been taken  after consultations with the Deputy Commissioner, DDPI and other authorities.



Speaking to reporters  at Circuit House on September 27, Thursday, Khader said steps are being taken to construct a new bridge at Moolerapatna instead of repairing the collapsed bridge. A sum of Rs 50 crore has been released  to the PWD for the purpose, he said.

New bridge at Gurupur  would be constructed at a cost of Rs 35 crores by the NHAI, he said adding  vehicles  will  continue to ply on the old bridge until the new bridge is complete.
