Mangaluru: State information technology minister S R Patil has informed that there is no proposal to set up an urban eco-park at the regional science centre in Pilikula in the city.
Curiously enough, minister in charge of district Ramanath Rai had announced in July 2014 that a sum of Rs 5 lakh had been set aside to set up an eco-park at Pilikula.
In reply to a question raised by MLC Ivan D’Souza in the council, Patil replied that there was no such proposal.
But the government has set up regional science centres in Dharwad and Mangaluru and also given a green signal for one to come up at Mysuru. He also informed that 66,646 students had visited the RSC at Pilikula so far.
