  1. Impossible things…… india never giveup J&K. Karnataka never giveup belgavi. In both case neibours are doing waste attempt. Hahaha….. jai bharat, jai karnataka.

  2. Great News!!! but one doubt Why that ” i ” at the end of the word Belagavi. BELAGAV sounds GREATTTT!!!!!

    One more question… Did Kannada people’s BANGALORE has overtaken by Bengalis??? why name city as bengal village [BENGAL-URU] ???

  3. Why rejoice on an illusionay achivement? What is in a name? Just a form, but the substance remains the same. With the new names, does anything change within these places? Nothing credible. The same old dirty pot-holed roads, uncleaned municipal waste, the same people littering around, the same water & electricity problems, etc, etc. Name change is just an egoistic victory and doesn’t add any real value in terms of economic benefits, neither to the individuals in those places nor to the country. Instead, everyone should have struggled to add more real value to their cities by bringing better living conditions, growth and prosperity. Such victories are worthwhile to boast about.
