Mangaluru: Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council B K Hariprasad alleged that attempts were being made to protect the toll gate in Surathkal.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Hariprasad sought details about the share from the toll plaza being disbursed to elected representatives of BJP from the coastal districts.

“Why are the MPs and MLAs arguing in favour of toll gates? Let them disclose their share in the toll collection. It is the height of shamelessness that MP has been self-praising even after betraying people who had elected him. The time has come to vacate you (MP) also like the illegal toll gate,” he tweeted.  In another tweet, he sought to know why the MP lauded himself. Is it for the merger of Surathkal toll gate with the one in Hejmadi, where exorbitant tariff will be collected? “Let them disclose efforts they had made to protect the toll gate,” said Hariprasad in his tweets without mentioning the names of MP and MLAs.
