Website Impact! We Highlighted It, MCC Fixed It

Mangaluru: Talk about the power of media, especially Electronic media where we highlight the civic issues and within few hours or few days the concerned authorities who can’t bear the criticism about heir negligence, quickly get into action and rectify the civic issues. In the past has highlighted various civic issues through our website, and there has been a tremendous effect with most of the problems being fixed in no time, from rectifying dilapidated roads, open drainage, non-friendly footpaths, dog menace etc etc.


Here is yet another story of website publicity which has brought positive results, and action has already been taken by the city administration, and other district officials. No doubt, that the media plays a key role in shaping the growth of the City. We had highlighted the dilapidated condition of the road stretch near Bendore-swell through a report “Not Smart! MCC ignoring Dilapidated Roads with Potholes”, which was published on 24 September, 2016 in Quite a few of our readers had forwarded this report to the officials concerned in the MCC, either through Whatsapp, Twitter, email and SMS. Few had even called over the phone and mentioned about the report.

And the result was very much fruitful- the MCC took action and the repair work of this road has been taken up as of 30 September. I appreciate the quick response by MCC. Not just from our side, today I felt, that even nonprofit organizations and citizens, in alliance with Government should really come up to make things possible and intended to work for the welfare of society. I am very pleased to inform your team that the potholes have been repaired. At least now a common man can get some hope that his grievances are being heard and even taken care of by the MCC. Thanks to MCC for taking up this job although factually speaking they should have taken it up earlier- Better late than never! Thanks.
