Mangalore: Ullal upgraded to city municipality - Minister Khadar

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore (SP)

Mangalore, Jul 10: State health and family welfare minister, U T Khadar, revealed that a decision was taken at the cabinet meeting held on Wednesday July 9, to upgrade Ullal town municipal council as city municipal council.

"This long-pending demand of the people of Ullal has materialized on account of continued efforts and sustained follow up action undertaken by people's representatives and officials. Ullal will emerge as the first ever city municipality of Dakshina Kannada district. This transformation will take once the government issues orders to that affect," he said.

Khadar said that there have been demands from several town municipalities in the state for being upgraded as city municipalities. He said that the cabinet meeting decided to upgrade in the first phase, eight town municipalities as city municipalities, and that Ullal happens to be one among them. He predicted that this upgradation will help Ullal to achieve all-round progress at a faster pace.

"The demand for this upgradation is backed by sustained efforts and struggles for the last three years. Once state chief minister, Siddaramaiah, signs the files, the government will come out with the order converting Ullal into city municipality," the minister explained.

Noting that transformation of a town municipality automatically makes it mandatory to hold fresh election for choosing a new team, he said ammendment to legal provisions would be brought to continue with the present administration even after the said upgradation.

"There will be changes in the administration set up once Ullal town municipality becomes city municipality. More officials will be posted, and the quantum of grants from the government will be doubled or trebled. These additional grants will pave way for all-round progress of Ullal. To make this happen, we need wholehearted support from the peoples' representatives and the people in general," he added.

Ullal block Congress president, Eshwar Ullal, hailed the hard work and unstinting efforts put forth by minister Khader towards realizing the dream of earning city municipality status for Ullal. He also acknowledged that the efforts of the people during the last three years have yielded fruits finally.

Addressing a press conference held on Wednesday in the office of Ullal block Congress, Eshwar also thanked urban development minister, Vinay Kumar Sorake, and district in-charge minister, B Ramanath Rai, for their contribution towards getting upgraded status for Ullal.

Chairman of Ullal town municipality standing committee, Dinesh Rai, backward classes standing committee chairman, Dinesh Kumpala, Jamaluddin, U T Muhammed, and some others were present at the press conference.

It is also gathered that the cabinet meeting's decision of allotting city municipality status also applies to Puttur town municipality.

    Shakuntal Shetty dont know how to get Publicity..poor lady Puttur also became Nagarasabe. Pt Jawaharlal Nehru wrote a letter to his daughter Mrs Gandhi form Tihar Jail when he was in freedom struggle."There is three type of people 1)Doing work taking credit 2)Doing nothing taking publicity 3)
    Doing work and Not taking publicity. You became last category.

    haaris, Puttur / Dubai..gottigenda oorugu phone malpodu kenodu..PUTTUR also upgraded as Municipality along with Ullal with other 7 cities..Because of Shaku Akkas effort entire total 9 Cities became Municipalities in the state . She has perused Putur case aggressively so that Govt took this decision instantly. Siddaramaiah said in the meeting " Ayamma Puttur MLA Thale Tinnuthade Bega Upgrade Madi " please give some credit to that lady.

    Mr. Yousuf,

    I will repeat it again , shakuntala shetty has done nothing for Puttur.
    The grade with Puttur got only because of the efforts from Sorake who is the Urban Development Minister and from Puttur.

    Congratulations to Mr U T Khadar . Please assure the People that Deralakatte area and Ullal will be kept Clean . Being the Minister of Health you should make sure that your Constituency is the most clean one .Garbage is not disposed in a scientific manner in your Constituency . Was a little surprised to see Garbage piling up every 30 meters beside the Thokkotu - Mudipu road . Request you to please support on Cleanliness once the Ullal Muncipal comes into effect .Please make Mangalore/ Bantwal and Ullal Plastic Free zone . Hope the People will cooperate too .

    I would prefer Mr. U.T. Khader becomes District in charge instead of Ramanath Rai. I am sure there will be lots of developments.
    Mr. Ramnath Rai can have good rest & sleep at home instead of straining himself.
