Mangaluru will be Doorway to Karnataka under Congress – Ex MLA Lobo
Mangaluru: “The people of this district want a successful Government. They want a party that fulfills their promises. The Congress party has always thought about the welfare of the people and the welfare of the nation. It is not a party that has simply thought about the welfare of the people, but it has also worked for it. During the time of the UPA government, this nation was among the top 10 nations at the Global level. However, in the last five years, the nation’s position at the global level has dropped”, said former Congress MLA J R Lobo in a press meet held at the Congress-JDS Election Office, Bendorewell here, on April 12.
Addressing the mediapersons J R Lobo said, “We have released a Manifesto that will transform Mangaluru into the doorway to the state of Karnataka. In our Manifesto, we have promised to make an Express Highway from Mangaluru to Goa and Mangaluru to Bengaluru. Even though it has been several years since the formation of the New Mangalore Port, we have not been able to make full use of it. If the Express Highway to Bengaluru is made, the New Mangalore Port will be extremely useful. We also want to re-establish trade with Lakshwadeep Island. We want to make a route linking the New Mangalore Port and the Old Mangalore Port through the Nethravati River. Dakshina Kannada is known for education but many engineers are jobless. We will build an IT centre for engineers.”
He further said, “After looking at the BJP Manifesto, I don’t know what to say about it. They have promised to develop the Mangaluru International airport but they have handed over the airport to Adani. They had announced and publicized the Smart City program given to Mangaluru. I want to ask the people of Mangaluru, has there been any development in the name of Smart City? I met a BSNL employee who has not received his salary for 6 months. Yet, they talk about BSNL in their Manifesto.”
Congress leaders Suresh Ballal, Mahabala Marla, Stany Alvares, Mariamma Thomas, Vishwas Das and others were also present.
