Ruling BJP,opposition Congress members spar over proposal to rename Suratkal junction after Savarkar


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Sep 27, 2023: The recommendation made by Mangaluru  North MLA Dr Bharath Shetty to the MCC to rename the Suratkal Junction as Sri Vinayaka Damodar Savarkar Circle led to a heated exchange of words between the ruling BJP and opposition Congress corporators during the MCC meeting held on September 27, Tuesday.

 

MCC


Congress member A C Vinayraj said the proposal has been opposed by as many as 14 organisations and hundreds of people. He also suggested that instead of renaming the circle after Savarkar, the MCC can name it after Subbayya Shetty who had fought for the  cause of the poor in order to secure land for them. The circle can also be named after Koti Chennaya or U R Mallya, he said.

Congress members urged that circles must be named after local leaders and welcomed the  move to rename Bondel circle after poet Sarvajna.

Congress member Praveenchandra Alva took exception for floating tenders in two phases for collecting solid waste management cess and added that tenders must be invited in four phases.

Many opposition members complained that tenders were invited without the knowledge of councillors.

Deputy Mayor Sunitha was also present.
