Mysore/Mysuru: After the stellar roadshow in Mandya and the public rally at Gejjalagere Colony by Prime Minister Narendra Modi held as part of the Mysuru-Bengaluru Expressway, the dignitaries accompanying the PM on stage including Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari and MP Pratap Simha took some time off and landed at Shivalli Hotel and savoured tasty snacks offered by the hotel.

The Prime Minister had left Mandya to Dharwad by then. A beaming Pratap Simha, whose tireless efforts ensured the conceptualisation, implementation and clearing all roadblocks of the project, took Gadkari to the hotel where Kesaribath, Masala Dosa and Pongal was served.

Secretary of Ministry for Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) Alka Upadhya and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) Chairman Santosh Kumar Yadav too accompanied Gadkari and had the taste of local flavours.

Using the opportunity to have a one-on-one meeting with Gadkari, MoRTH Secretary and BHAI Chairman, Pratap Simha urged them to initiate the road works of the four-lane Expressway between Paschimavahini and Guddehosur for which the foundation stone was laid by the PM. This apart, the MP also took up the issue of upgrading the Nanjangud National Highway from the present four lanes to six lanes.

He also mentioned upgrading and widening Mysuru-H.D. Kote-Manandavadi Road and Mysuru-Malavalli-Kirangooru-Pandavapura-Nagamangala Road. “The Minister responded positively and told me the Centre is for development, increasing employment and ease of business and would spare no efforts to make world-class infrastructure a reality,” Simha told Star of Mysore.

“The Minister was fully relaxed as a crucial project that will boost the all-round growth of Mysuru has been dedicated to the nation. He also appreciated the taste of the dishes served to him,” the MP added.

    Already the Malayalee crime gangs deployed by the Malayalee crime barons resident in the UAE, here in Abu Dhabi, who pose as respected businessmen, who are smuggling currently gold into Kerala , are targeting Mysore as the new business centre for them. When Narendra Modi arrived in the UAE last year, we tried to warn him about these Malayalee businessman, bu he did not listen/ He met them and assured them that he will approve a direct non-stop jet passenger service from Abu Dhabi to Mysore, when the Mysore airport is ready.
    The above Malayalee gangs are already bringing smuggled gold in to Mysore through Wayanad-Nanjangud route, and their gold smuggling operations are underway in this highway. Soon, you will notice the gangs buying lands and buildings in Mandya and Chennapatna to help with their operations of distributing gold.
    You can see plenty of gold in jewellery shops in Mandya, and the Hawaala money is already flowing in to Mandya and Maddur.
    You will not fail to notice the number of Aldis, Mercedes and BMW cars sing the highway, most of them belong to these gangs.
    This highway will become the crime gangs paradise for their operations.
