    Accident occurred at Manipal-Ambagilu/Udupi junction not at Ambagilu Junction. But yes, there should be the flyover/underpass at Ambagilu/Ambalpady/ Katpadi/ Padubidri Junctions. The elected MP/MLA' s are busy in dividing people on religion basis.

    Immediately after election, Government must nationalize Udupi, DK, bus route. For the safety of passengers and others who are on the roads.

    Udupi people elected MP and MLA bases on religion, not on development or any other people's friendly projects. Now its bearing the fruits. Just chill and enjoy it. You can also come to udupi and be a part of that free ride service to another world.
