Mangaluru: Newly-appointed minister for urban development and housing U T Khader said that the fact that BJP MLAs dominate Dakshina Kannada would not come in the way of development of the district.
Answering a question on the challenges of implementing development projects in a district dominated by MLAs of the opposition, Khader said, "They (BJP MLAs) are not my enemies. We should not do politics when it comes to development, instead we should join hands and work together for the betterment of Mangaluru."
Addressing a press meet here, Khader said that a proposal will be placed in the upcoming meeting on increasing the income criteria under the housing scheme.
"Congress-JD(S) coalition government has given me the responsibility of urban development and housing. I will hold a discussion with the urban development and housing departments about the future course of action for the betterment of the people, and will sort out the existing problems.
Former MLAs J R Lobo and Abhaychandra Jain, mayor Bhaskar Moily, deputy mayor Mohammed, former mayor Kavitha Sanil and others were present.
