Mangaluru, Aug 6: One month is over since the deadline of June 22 was given for the closure of Surathkal toll gate by MP Nalin Kumar Kateel and union minister Nitin Gadkari. However, the toll gate still collects the toll from vehicles.
The Surathkal toll gate protest committee urged to close the toll gate before August 15.

Muneer Katipalla, convener of the committee said, “It is not possible for us to hold any protest in this regard as there are restrictions in the district following the recent incidents. If the Surathkal toll gate is not closed before August 15, we will resort to gherao, stoppage of toll collection and sit in protest by thousands of people in front of the toll gate after August 15.
“The ruling government and people representatives are using the present situation in the district to cover up their failures in administration and issues that bother commoners,” accused Muneer.
