Udupi Road widening: A dream come true

Catalyst for development, saving precious fuel...a gift for the future of Udupi!

All it required was 1. Vision 2. Political will power to execute this project against all odds 3. A mindset to plan for the future!...

This road is now widened, ready for use (finishing touches pending)...
Thanks to the persistence of Dr V S Acharya, this road is a reality now{also thanks to the Dynamic MLA Raghupathi Bhat, Efficient DC Ponnuraj, Hemalatha and the Government of Karnataka (BJP-JDS combine and now BJP Govt).,and most important...the people who cooperated for land aquisition}

This road to success was not without hurdles...starting from Litigants(who did not own any land, but could get stay orders from honourable courts), Opposition leaders with myopic vision(who wanted a 40 feet road and were spreading rumours about lack of funds), Critics (who claim that new road is dangerous!)

Please see for yourself, the difference...Before and after photo!

With the current oppose-everything mindset it is very difficult to kick off any new projects - even if it is useful.

So thank you for persisting with the road widening project and getting it open for public.

ಮಾನ್ಯ ಸಚಿವರೇ: ಉಡುಪಿ ಮಣಿಪಾಲ ಜನರ ಬಹು ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕನಸು ನನಸು ಮಾಡಿರುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಅಭಿನಂದನೆಗಳು.

ಸರಕಾರ - ಜನಪ್ರತಿನಿಧಿಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು - ಮನಸು ಮಾಡಿದರೆ ಯಾವುದೂ ಅಸಾಧ್ಯವಲ್ಲವೆಂಬುದಕ್ಕೆ ಇದೊಂದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಉದಾಹರಣೆ.

ಬಿಜೆಪಿ ಅಧಿಕಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದ ಒಂದು ಒಂದೂವರೆ ವರ್ಷದೊಳಗೆ ಇಂತಹ ಮಹತ್ತರ ಸಾಧನೆ ಮಾಡಿರುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದಾಗ ದಶಕಗಳ ಕಾಲ ನಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಆಳಿದವರೇನು ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದರೆಂಬ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆ ಉದ್ಭವಿಸುವುದು ಸಹಜ!
