Mangaluru: Slain Surathkal Fazil's family to get compensation - MLA Bharath Shetty

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, Jan 29: "The family members of slain Fazil will get compensation from the government. His name is included in a list of compensation, said MLA Dr Bharath Y Shetty.

He was answering queries by media persons regarding compensation for slain Fazil's family of Surathkal during the Meet the Press programme organised by the Dakshina Kannada Working Journalists' Association and Mangaluru Press Club here on Tuesday, January 31.

To a question regarding why he had failed to visit the residence of Fazil after the murder, Bharath Shetty said that there was credible information that if he had visited the residence the situation could worsen and hence he did not go.

He refused to comment on VHP's Sharath Pumpwell's statement that Fazil was killed as a revenge for Praveen Nettaru's murder, stating that he had no knowledge of that comment.

Spreaking on development works in his constituency, the MLA said, "Only a few wards of MCC in my constituency are in tune with the Smart City Project. Extra funds for complete development from the government have been sought for the completion of development works on Tannirbhavi beach by providing good amenities to tap its potential as a rich tourist destination."

Dr Bharath said that the process of developing Tannirbhavi into Blue Flag standards work started at an estimated cost of Rs 7.5 crore, which would be used to provide various basic amenities, including toilets, changing rooms and security personnel.

Another Rs 9.5 crores will be sought from Mangaluru Smart City Ltd funds to undertake further development works around Tannirbhavi beach including development of Nair Kudru. For the complete development of Tannirbhavi beach and Nair Kudru it may require Rs 40 crores, he said.

He also spoke on the development of Idya beach and Panambur beach.

MLA also added that due to the rainy season and the pandemic the development work had come to a halt. "All interior roads in rural areas and the city limits corporation have been developed during my tenure. I have personally spoken to the neighbouring MLAs to provide drinking water to the houses. As many as 6,455 title deeds pending from the past 25 to 30 years have been given to the beneficiaries. Total emphasis has been laid on the development of the constituency through various projects," Bharath Shetty said.

Journalists Jithendra Kundeshwara, Shrinivas Indaje and others were present on the occasion. P B Harish Rai compered.

    This man seems to be woken up just before 2 months to assembly elections......... Speaking meaningless, I guess he is not a joker...... As for Componsation to Slain Fazils family , even the Taklu CM was in District during recent two murders, but he is only interested to pay 25lakh to Slain RSS leader. Its like BJP govt is just for RSS peoples not for other religions. What a discriminatory mentality by these Bigotry Janata Party leaders

    Coastal Karnataka was famous by its various tourist and religious places. There is scope for development of tourist sectors, which will lead to more employment opportunities. Only hindrances we have are some notorious gangs, indulged in so called immoral policing. If government impartially take action against those criminals, there is scope for more developments.

    Same statement will be repeated for another 10 if his govt remains in power without any development as it’s not important to this govt, but the sanctioned money will disappear for important work like Love-jihad and to win elections.

    This is nothing but a money swindling project. No one cares about blue flag beaches in Mangalore. No one is stupid in Mangalore to pay entry fees to a beach and visit when there are beaches across Kudla for free. Plus the dogs on the beach have already been shooed away,cows won't be allowed nearby,what kind of a beach is that? This is nothing but a money making project for the MLA that's all.
