Mangaluru: South Mangaluru had seen slow pace of developments in the backdrop of Covid pandemic coupled with incessant rains for past three years. But the MLA B. Vedavyas Kamath has seen that in total Rs. 4,750 Crore grants from the Central Government and the State Governments has been sanctioned for various development works in the last four-and-a-half years.
MLA Kamath said that the next work can be started only after the completion of one road in the City. And that is why the pace seems slow. And as far as other development works are concerned. It has been taken phase by phase as the grant money is already sanctioned, he added.
Further, Rs. 792 Crore has been granted for the Jalasiri Project. However, only 5 to 7 per cent of the works has been completed now and the project is being implemented on the basis of the population of the City in 2055. After overcoming all the obstructions now the works have resumed and has begun progressing at a good pace.
MLA Kamath said, “The City currently has 162 MLD water per day. In all 50 MLD is being pumped out. There are also leakages.” He added that the leakages in the new project can be ascertained sitting in the Corporation. He also said an agreement has been made to provide 50 MLD water from Harekala Dam to the City.
The work is going on in order to fulfill future vision of the MLA of the Constituency, that is of developed Constituency. If the work continues in this speed surely the Mangaluru South area will soon be a developed area of the City.
