Opposition leader Abdul Rauf of Mangaluru City Corporation said, “The district administration has completely failed in undertaking Smart City works.”
Addressing media here on Friday January 1, he said, “It has been two years since Smart City works began. Two months ago, roads in the city were closed for concretisation without any prior intimation which caused lot of trouble to the public. Now the works have been completely stopped, which again is a pain to the public. The district administration has completely failed. There is no quality in the work.
“Look at the concretisation work at Car Street. Within two months of the work, cracks have appeared on the road which seems to be unfit for the vehicular movement. There is no proper vision and plan in undertaking the Smart City works.
“In order to shift the central market, work was undertaken at football ground in haste. The expense was Rs 1.5 crore. Recently, the court has issued an order on the football ground and Nehru Maidan that it has to be used only for playing. Now the work undertaken with the expense of Rs 1.5 crore is a complete waste,” he said.
Corporators Lancelot Pinto, Naveen D’Souza, Shashidhar Hegde and others were present.
