Mangaluru: The stretch of road from the Ambedkar Circle till the Jyoti Circle, formerly known as St Aloysius College Road or Light House Hill Road, will be known as the Mulki Sunder Ram Shetty Road effective Wednesday, September 23. The inauguration of the road was held on Wednesday, next to the Hampankatta branch of the Syndicate Bank.

The road was inaugurated by cutting a ribbon, unveiling the new road name board, a small puja by smashing coconuts and the releasing of balloons by MCC Mayor Diwakar Pandeshwar, along with founder-chairman of the International Bunts Welfare Trust and Entrepreneur Sadananda Shetty, president of the district Bunts Nadavara Mathr Sangha entrepreneur Ajith Kumar Maladi, BJP district president Sudharshan Moodbidri, BJP leaders and Corporators, and others.

On the occasion, a short procession was taken out from the Syndicate Bank in Hampankatta till Bank of Baroda (formerly Vijaya Bank) near the Jyothi Circle.

Speaking on the occasion, MCC Mayor Diwakar expressed how it was his dream to have a road named in honour of a great banker like Mulky Sunder Ram Shetty, something that is needed to respect a person who has done so much for society. “We need to appreciate the support of Chief Minister Yediyurappa and the efforts of MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, MLA Vedavyas Kamath, and other strong BJP leaders to get this done. The citizens and businesses on this road should start using the new name, in honour of a great soul,” he said.

It can be recalled that there was a lot of opposition to the renaming of the road, especially from the management of St Aloysius Institutions, Muslim Organizations, and others.

Mulki Sunder Ram Shetty was the founder-chairman of the erstwhile Vijaya Bank for many years. He joined the board of directors of the bank as the chairman from 1962 and was the honourable chairman from 1962 to 1969. It was under his leadership that the bank reached great heights.
