Speaking to the mediapersons at the Circuit house Roshan Baig said, “After a brief discussion about the development work in Dakshina Kannada district, I have found that the people are facing severe problems due to the single site problems and that people need to go to the Taluk office twice or thrice to get the approval single sites. There are a number of complaints about the harassment faced by the people. I will go to Bengaluru and discuss the issue with the concerned authorities to simplify the single site approval process”.

The minister also said that in Mangaluru we have to make good bus stops and markets. Markets in Kadri, Kankanady, Suratkal, Hampankatta and other places have to be developed. We are preparing the plans and are in the process of doing the feasibility reports of the roads.

  1. Development of a City can be focused in a ten-fold fashion. City such as Mangalore has already been established with the following broad-based parameters such as :-

    a) Education and Educational Institutions including Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Engineering.
    b) Sea Port and Air Port facility with an active network of Railways and Bus transportation
    c) Tourist attractions such as Temples, Basillicas, Mosques and many other historic sights
    d) Parks and Recreational spots.
    e) Most importantly, the people of all cultures, religions with a wide variety of disciplines.
    f) Shopping Centers, Restaurants, Hotels and several other Handicraft centers.

    All that Mangalore requires is good and broad roads, clean streets with daily garbage collections.

    City development creates increased Economic growth, appreciation of properties and attraction for people from all parts of India to visit and patronize our services.

    India is the only country where the population is ever growing with emerging new generations that will bring strength and vitality to our society. All of the above will bring more jobs to the City, more taxes to our treasury, and more progress in our vibrant community.

    It’s good for everybody. Let us therefore render more focus on new developments with the help of new technology so that our progress will move forward swiftly and satisfactorily, and the people will become the ultimate beneficieries. Thank you very much.
