Mangaluru, Dec 31 2019: MLC Ivan D’Souza has accused Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel of fooling the public by giving deadlines for the completion of the Pumpwell flyover works.
The MLC’s remarks have come as the latest deadline set by the MP for the inauguration of the flyover was coming to a close. Nalin had recently stated that the flyover works would complete by December end and th e project will be inaugurated in the first week of January.
On December 31, Tuesday, a fact-finding committee of the Congress including former minister Ramanatha Rai, former MLA J R Lobo, MLC Ivan D’Souza and other leaders visited the flyover construction site where works are still underway.
Ivan said the team was informed by engineers at the site that the project may require another three months for completion.
He also said the Congress will stage a protest at Pumpwell on January 1 at 4 pm against the inordinate delay in the completion of the flyover.
