Inaugurating the Onam celebrations of the Karnataka Nair Service Society’s Mangalore Karayogam here on Sunday, he said that he was happy to see that there was no dumping of waste on the roadside here. “Nair society members should study the way city roads are maintained clean here. This should be implemented in Kerala’s cities,” he said.
