Mangaluru, Nov 8: Former MLA, Mangaluru South Constituency J R Lobo challenged MLA Vedavyas Kamath regarding various developments in city especially the false information which is given by current MLA on housing project planned at Shakthinagar. 

In a press held at Congress office on Friday, November 8 J R Lobo said “MLA Vedavyas Kamath is spreading wrong information over the G+3 housing project which was approved during my tenure at Shakthinagar. In a media statement he has said that I have cheated the people. I am challenging him to prove in which context I have cheated them. I am not a person to even think about cheating,” 

"During my tenure I brought the project of 1,000 houses for poor and homeless. I succeeded in getting this project approved from the urban development and found 10 acres at Shakthinagar. Five nationalized banks also came forward to associate with this project. But as per rules we cannot use more than five acres forest land for construction purpose. So forest department demanded alternative forest land from revenue department and revenue department also agreed to handover its land. At that time election was declared and as per law the proceedings of housing project stopped for a short time. But after the elections, Vedavyas Kamath was elected as MLA and till date he did not show any interest to complete this project. Even he does not have the basic knowledge of this project. Blindly he is giving statement that I have cheated the people,” he added. 

"In the past two years no development works have taken place in the city. He is putting banners and getting publicity by inaugurating the projects which all were approved and completed during my tenure. On his own, he has not done anything for this city. I am telling him in a straight manner that if he cannot serve the people and develop the city, it is better to resign from his post. If I get chance a second time I will show him how to develop the city and how to do planning for new projects. Again I am demanding MLA Vedavyas Kamath to show the developmental works of his during his two years tenure and I am also ready to show what I have done during my tenure. Then people will understand who is right who is wrong,” he said. 

"I am asking Vedavyas Kamath what is the current status of Smart City? How many new projects have been undertaken during his tenure? After 10 years also they cannot construct Pumpwell Flyover, they cannot find a solution for traffic at Nanthoor and they cannot run Kadri Park. When I left my chair all projects stopped and no one has taken initiative to add on something to it or complete it,” he complained. 

“Congress gave 90% of contribution for the development of the city. That is why people elected its corporators for five terms. Congress knows very well how to plan the projects and implement them. We will do it and no one can stop us." Lobo concluded.

Shakunthala Shetty, former MLA, Puttur , and other district leaders were present.

    I agree on this point , Kamath should show some original ideas rather than riding on someone else's plans and taking credit for them.

    Why you did not open your mouth during the election regarding incompletion of the housing project. ? Why you did not tell the people about your plans for smart city. When V Kamath started digging you and now you are opening your mouth. People want development . Where is multi story parking specially market and PVS area. Mangalore need well planned Market with car parking and one floor area completely allotted to hawkers with easy excess. Now Hawkers are occupying half the road.. you people visit foreign Countries but never implement any projects in Mangalore which can be appreciated. You have only done some beatification at Valentia road which can be appreciated. Have you done anything for stinking water canals which spreads Maleria and Dengue. Drainage pipes are the only solution for the open over flowing gutters. You people wake up at last moment and blame the system and election. We require dynamic people who got to people and solve their problem,

    People deserve their government - as the saying goes. Ignorance is not an excuse.
    Kamath is a novice.

    There is some feeling that coastal mangalore region is neglected by centre and the state govts.

    My view is that mangalore is left behind because of our inability to elect good legislators.
    We elect based on religion, caste and party lines. I was amazed that this changed when JR Lobo was MLA. I don't care about a person's religion or caste or party. I care about development of Mangalore.
    Does not matter which party is in centre or state , if our MLA and MP do not work for us , then we lose out.
    I personally don't think we have elected people who work for mangalore. Ribbon cutting only will not develop mangalore. As citizens we need to rise above religion caste creed of a person but see honesty , sincerity and efforts . I think in this regard we have failed miserably. At present the progress will be slow because the elected do not seem to understand or have the passion to do service like Mr.Lobo

    First of all Mr.J.R.Lobo is a down to earth person. Everyone in m'lore knows and endorsed the development works done by Mr.Lobo. Last two years nothing has been done other than protecting cows.
    M'lore is no more smart city it's a garbage stinking city. Roads are totally gone and accidents are increased.
    Hope Congress will come in MCC elections.

    By looking at the current cituation of India, I remeber a story, my grandpa used to say, Once all the animals chose Monkey as king of jungle. Whenever they approach the king monkey with their problems, the monkey used to jump from tree to tree, saying "I am trying my best to solve the issue" !.. But there is only 1 change in this story and our cituation - Animals learnt a lesson from this and decided, not to elect monkey, never again... We did'nt....
