Belgaum is being a backbone to auto ancillary units of Central and south India, but little has the government done so far on its development in this field known for body building of trucks and buses, earlier government though established Auto nagar, but lack of integrated facility and proper infrastructure the project failed miserably.
TELCO was smartly moved by Mr Sr Bommi regime to Dharwad, none of our Belgaum politicians could raise up on this issue ever and I believe they will keep falling too low till Belgaum looses on most of the front, the recent issues was of hero Honda plant which I wrote to CM and asked after TELCO; is Belgaum liable to lose more such industries, and even wrote to Pavan Minjal CMD Hero Motors.
The GOVERNMENT OF KARNATAKA Commerce & Industries Dept. in its email has replied that and I quote ” Commerce & Industries Dept. has come out with a New Industrial Policy 2009-14 with an emphasis on promotion of industries in backward areas of Karnataka. Normally, Department of Industries & Commerce suggests suitable locations to the investor for the venture. However, the selection of final location is the prerogative of the investor.
Belgaum, Dharwad and Haveri were the suggested locations to Hero Honda. However, Hero Honda has not yet finalized the location.”
What is that the politicians of Karnataka in rest of the state have such mealy attitude towards “on” Belgaum and what is the point in beating drums by Mr Nirani on Hero Honda plant at Hubli.
I believe be it Hon CM or Mr Nirani let Hero Honda decide on shown place of interest, well no talks have ever taken place on Mahindra and Mahindra plant in Belgaum, I believe we Belguimtes need have to live with this fake calls and false promises.
Let there be fair competition and I bet “on” Belgaum wouldn’t then ever fall out.
