    You have mixed up 'cleanliness' with 'Solid Waste Management'.

    Solid Waste Management refers to collecting the solid waste from households in a planned manner and disposing it appropriately. This requires a lot of hard work and skills, as demonstrated by Mr Lobo.

    Dear Vishwanath, Kolya/Mangalore / Dubai,

    I understand that the task of constructing over bridges along the Highways is of the central government. It is the highways authority of India which executes and oversees this work. I think it is improper to blame the local MLA for the delay in such works. Let's be fair in passing unfounded comments. Know that truth is truth. God bless India. God bless Karnataka.

    Lets not give only credit to politicians, lets pat our own back its bcz we as Mangalorean citizen kept our city clean & not to forget Swach mission Bharat conducted by Ramakrishna Ashram, Yes there are still scope of improvement, but this is something good for Mangalorean's .

    I m being a Hindu i always feel its Catholic community who are always on upper hand when it comes to cleanliness, i always observe that they keep their surrounding clean and planting trees at their residence , few places which i remember at this movement , Kadri, Bejai, Valencia, Shaktinagr & Kulshekhar, double gate, Gerosa Road.

    Jai Tulunadu.

    The credit goes to JR Lobo and we Lost BEST candidate this time. Many people have voted for Religion this time and not for Development or Jobs. They want to eat religion, sleep religion, dream religion and live religion. Very sad. Cannot understand where are we heading.

    Mangaluru should target to become Cleanest city in Zonal level and then finally in National level..

    Because of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and it's policy of Naming and Shaming unhygienic cities.. hope India will become clean in next 10 years...

    Opposition parties and Media in the lower ranked cities will make sure that they become Cleaner.

    You are right Ummar. Ungrateful people failed to recognize the contributions of this man and failed to elect him. Caste paid a major role rather than development.

    Dear Robin,

    With all due respect to your un biased comments - what you are trying to imply is that a candidate or a MLA per se should not do good work if he or she is not in the "RIGHT" party.

    You must be kidding me. JR Lobo had a beautiful vision for Mangalore which unfortunately dubious games and dirty politics played by the RIGHT party meant that he would not be able to realize this vision. We as citizens get swayed by politics of caste and creed instead of focusing on the matters that count, development, stability and peace for your area and its surroundings.

    It is very sad to note that both our districts have not considered these basic points but instead swayed towards tall claims and talk by so called National leaders of the RIGHT party - what you do not understand is that the NATIONAL leaders play a limited or no role in the functioning and development of the constituency (Classic examples are our elected MP's from the twin districts who are representatives of the RIGHT party and have done little other create communal tension among us peace loving Mangalorean's)

    End of the Day it isn't about being part of the RIGHT party it is all about doing the RIGHT thing for your constituency which unfortunately we as citizens have just made a WRONG decision.

    Jai Hind!
