    I dont think any big development projects can be expected either in Mangaluru or in Udupi districts...A city like Mangaluru/DK needs a IT/BT or heavy industries or Tourism portfolio minister.

    Sunil Kumar is tasting his own medicine now. 2 years ago, he did not allow Kota Srinivas Poojary to become district in-charge of Udupi and pushed him to DK.
