Mangaluru, Nov 27: Nivedith Alva, who was earlier a KPCC secretary, assumed charged as chairman of Coastal Development Authority (CDA) at the CDA office here on Thursday November 27.

Nivedith Alva is the son of veteran politician Margaret Alva.

Addressing the media after taking charge, Nivedith Alva said, "The state government and the Congress party have provided this opportunity to me. Basically I am from Uttara Kannada. Now I have got opportunity to work here.

"I have newly taken charge of this authority. We will proceeed after holding discussions with the deputy commissioner and the officers on the developmental activities and scope."

He also said that he has already contacted all the ministers from the coastal districts regarding his new responsibility.

Speaking on his background he said, "I was into the field of television production and contributed various programmes to television channels. I also worked for the party. Considering my educational qualification and work, the Congress party has provided me this with opportunity."

    I saw some lovely nature documentaries made by this man and I thought here is the next generation of Bedi brothers. Sadly he has ruined all that by dissociating himself with a rotten state government organisation.
