    Congratulations to the newly elected Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Mangalore Corporation. Both of you need to make a survey of entire Mangalore which is coming under your jurisdiction and firstly find out what is required there and need to be done. Give First priority to Health issue which take care of cleanliness, mosquito free place etc., Secondly give priority for the roads and foot path. Make the road pot free and motorable and provide foot path on all the roads so that people can walk freely. I wish you provide a small road for cycling but may not be possible in all places/roads but can be tried in few main roads. Thirdly make Mangalore free from beggers ( all sorts of begging). Make Mangalore a clean and smart city. Take care and stay safe and make Mangalore safe place. wish you all the very best.
