Concerns raised about quality of road construction

The issue of Nehru Ground being referred to as “Kendra Maidan” by some of the organisers conducting events there was raised in the meeting chaired by the District in-charge Minister B. Ramanath Rai on Thursday. It was alleged that the Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) itself was giving permission to organisers of events to describe it as Kendra Maidan.

When MCC Commissioner K. Ajith Hegde denied this, MLA J.R. Lobo said he had seen the receipts that called it so. An angry Mr. Rai said the events organised should be stopped if they described it by any name other than Nehru Maidan.
