  1. Why it is built on the basis of DBOT? really not getting. almost all bus stands in Karnataka built by govt. fund why not Belgaum bus stand. If no one is coming forward then govt. should fund for this project. Even Hubli,Hassan,Dharwad can be built by Govt. money why not Belgaum.

  2. How many times we here this TENDER, TENDER, TENDER,,,,,
    Since my childhood am hearing this.
    Is there any End to this ???

  3. Let the NWRTC first remove the hawkers on their boundry wall first who are adding
    tonnes of garbage
    diseases
    Huge traffic due to hawkers
    Dirtiness
    pollution
    then think of something like infrastructure
