Udupi, Oct 4: Chief minister (CM) Siddaramaiah has called upon a meeting with peoples representatives of Udupi district to discuss the building materials supplying lorry owners’ issues of the Udupi district.
The meeting will be held on October 5 in Bengaluru. MP, MLAs of Udupi district, in-charge minister Laxmi Hebbalkar, minister for mines and geology S S Mallikarjuna and other officials will be participating in the meeting.
The MLAs and Congress leaders had met Siddaramaiah earlier and had requested him to chair a joint meeting and resolve the issue at the earliest.
