J.R. Lobo, Mangalore South MLA, on Sunday promised to the residents of Kannagudde, Umikana and Saripalla that he would try to get funds from the government for the improvement of road connecting these villages with Kulashekara. Speaking after receiving a memorandum from the residents, Mr. Lobo said it was technically not feasible to reconstruct the road on the railway tunnel and hence land abutting the rail line could be utilised. The existing road has been in a state of disrepair for long time affecting the residents.
