    They have better leaders. Maximum Mangloreans of Saudi Arabia are working in Riyadh and Jeddah. Not a single direct flight is there from Mangalore to these important cities.

    We and our representatives should be ashamed that despite having all the natural benefits and opening our Mangalore airport since years we are still unable to open and operate fully. Still we are suffering with limited frequencies and limited airlines.
