    So now you understood who is behind the collecting the toll tax??? Almost all MLAs' from our region opposed Toll Tax Collection recently.... But surprisingly instead of stopping Toll Gate....they inserted one Gate between Padubidri and Karkala!!!! People who bombarded their comments blaming understood the meaning of KSHIP...I believe

    Then Karnataka govt should stop taking life time vehicle tax and taxes on petrol and diesel.
    We need to pay tax then toll at each and every point of journey . This is ridiculous . This govt know only to loot money and give them as " Bhagyas " to fill their own pockets.

    We are already paying Rs. 75 as toll from Mangalore to Karkala via Padubidri and now we'll end up paying about Rs. 100 for a distance 67km. Is this really necessary to develop India?

    One lane toll free road was good between Karkala and padubidri.
    50 crores reserved for tippu jayanti
    So all the taxes paid by people gets misused

    Main reason of the toll business is to enrich the Toll Contractors...Gadkari started this new 'Toll Scam'...friends of Gadkari and Pawar are in this toll business in Maharashtra...and made thousands of Crores in this..

    Now Siddu and party are trying to use same tricks...what is the use in giving 'anna bhagya'...taking from people through 'Yenne Bhagya' & 'Highway Robbery Bhagya'....
