Bapu: Yes Bittoo…
Bittoo: The Congress road, Khanapur road, Udyambagh-Peeranwadi road and several other stretches are fresh with big and small potholes giving nightmerish experience to road users Bapu?
Bapu: That’s true and a recurring problem Belagaviates face round the year, more so during monsoons.
Bittoo: Even one of the turns at the Rani Channamma circle, the face of Smart city, Belagavi has turned from bad to worst Bapu?
Bapu: That is just another case of prolonged negligence Bittoo.
Bittoo: And Bapu.
Bapu: What else Bittoo?
Bittoo: Do you know radio jockey R.J. Malishka of 93.5 Red FM has composed a wonderful song – essentially a poetic depiction of the plight of worsening road-conditions in the Mumbai-the financial capital of India and demanding the government to return taxes collected from the public? The song has gone viral in social media. Isn’t that a kind of social responsibility Bapu?
Bittoo: But, I am afraid of our native artists here might get inspired by her song? What do you think about Bapu?
Bittoo: Do you think that the Belagaviates will just enjoy listening to her song or rise to the occasion?
Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo…!
