    Please put a stop on the 1.50 rule fpr autos. I was charged on the basis on 1.50 additional to the meter when traveling from Jyoti to Bondel outside Daijiworld office.

    Last night an auto rickshaw driver was asking me to pay 1.50 additional to the meter around 9 pm just from Valencia to Jyoti. This is not acceptable.

    And auto rickshaw drivers have become very rude over the years.

    Please implement more city buses and request to put a ban on those very loud sounding horns.

    Traffic needs to be monitored near KMC hospital circle, on GHS Road and KS Rao Road.

    Put an end to city bus operation mafia. You put an end to city bus, taxi services in Mangalore Airport and strict laws on auto rikshwa's 50% of your task is completed. Illegal parking, vendor's occupying footpath and roads need to be eliminated. Interstate rowdism should be eliminated. Most of the rowdism is flowing into DK from neighboring state. Stop this inflow of immigrants to DK.

    Good Luck Harsha.

    Remove tint of all vehicles, 20% of drug mafia will be exposed. Rest 80 % will take retirement. We as citizens say that govt system should be transparent...but first why can't we be transparent in our dealings.. Safety of entire city will be assured if tinted vehicles are stopped and have their tint removed. I appreciate the work done by mlore citizens but our unity towards bringing down evil deeds is poor.

    Hope you follow up the good work done by previous Commissioner Sandip Patil.

    Even if you cant stop the evil activities completely , make them control. Those who do crime should have a fear in their mind which will help in controlling the crime.

    A strategy on tackling crimes in Mangalore city and enhancing friendliness between the people and police. This statement from The Commissioner of Police spells out a lot. It is good to observe that some one who was earlier working in Puttur and one who knows Mangalore and the suburbs has been posted to Tn Port City of Mangalore.

    Apart from crime there is a lot to be done with regard to Traffic. Mr. Sanjiv Pattil and his predecessors have paid considerable attention to the Traffic Crime as I would term it.

    Welcome Mr. Harsha .... It is my hope to meet you personally in Mangalore on my return to India

    Every Police Commissioner comes with his pet theories, the implementation is a big question mark, the IPS officer's may have good intentions, but Political interference will make their task impossible. This is the bane of our society.

    The biggest Rowdy's are the bus driver's and conductors, they are maniacs on the road.. and also the drunkard's who create nuisance..

    Controlling Drug Mafia is easy. Try controlling the City bus drivers, That's a much tougher challenge.. You do that, and then we will believe whatever you have to say.
