Sugar factory to be leased to private sector: MLA

UDUPI: MLA Raghupati Bhat said on Saturday that the Brahmavar Sugar Factory would be leased to private parties in order to rejuvenate it. He was speaking in the "Face-to-Face" programme organised by the Udupi Consumers' Forum here.

Mr. Bhat said private parties would have to first clear the dues of the farmers and pay the remaining salaries of the workers to the sugar factory. The Government was already holding talks with some private companies in this regard and it would not run the factory.

He said the widening work of the narrow Bannanje-Kalsank stretch of Udupi-Manipal would begin soon.

The notification for widening of the road to 80 feet had been issued by the Revenue Department. The compensation for land acquisition to land owners would be given shortly. Nearly 60 per cent of landowners had volunteered to give their land for the widening work. The widening work including land acquisition would be taken up at a cost of Rs. 24 crore.

Answering a question, the MLA said the repair work of the Gundibail-Kalsank Road had been delayed owing to the mistake of officials. However jelly had been put on the road and asphalting would be taken up soon.

The second stage of Swarna Drinking Water Project is in its final stages. This year there would be no drinking water shortage in Udupi city.

BJP threatens ‘rail roko’ on Saturday

Udupi: K. Raghupati Bhat, MLA, said on Wednesday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers would block the Matsyagandha Express in Udupi at 1.30 p.m. on Saturday and stage a “rail roko” against the extension of train services, which runs between Mumbai and Mangalore, to Thiruvananthapuram.


Addressing presspersons here, Mr. Bhat said the Matsyagandha Express was serving the people of three coastal districts who visited Mumbai. But recently the Indian Railways extended this train to Thiruvananthapuram, which had deprived seat reservation for passengers in Udupi and Mangalore.


This was the only train from Mangalore on the Konkan Railway route and it should be retained. The Indian Railways could start a separate train from Thiruvananthapuram on this route to cater to the demands of the people there, he said.

The Janashatabdhi Express, which was earlier running between Mumbai and Mangalore, was now running between Mumbai and Madgaon in Goa. It was no longer entering Karnataka. This train should be allowed to run between Mumbai and Mangalore as before, he said and added that all these instances showed that the Union Railways Ministry was meting out a step-motherly treatment to coastal districts of Karnataka, he charged.
