Mangaluru: Mangaluru South MLA B Vedavyas Kamath said that the Central and State Governments have implemented several schemes for the development of City and released grants worth crores of rupees.
He was speaking after laying the foundation stone for Mangaladevi bus terminal, primary health centre, veterinary clinic and construction of a new housing complex for MCC staff at 56th Mangaladevi ward under Mangaluru Smart City Project. “Governments are committed to the development of Mangaluru as an international city. In this regard, a lot of works required by the City are being undertaken and implemented. Bus stops on the main road of Mangala Devi Temple has been causing inconvenience to the public moving around. The municipal staff quarters are old and difficult to live in and rainwater is leaking in the primary health centre and veterinary clinics. Therefore, the construction of a primary health centre, veterinary clinic and bus terminal at a cost of Rs 4.98 Crore and a housing complex for municipal corporation staff at a cost of Rs. 2 Crore have been taken up,” he said.
