  1. In any field most neglected is our dist. Why where is the problem ? What our ministers are doing ? Every thing must be as per population. Why isn’t ?

  2. Either we’re being treated like the red-headed / step child or the funds being allocated for Belgaum is being distributed as pocket money. Having been here 6 years now my guess is it’s the latter.

    I could be wrong though.

    Doubtful though.

    Be safe . . .
    be RSPONSIBLE . . ,
    and STAY blessed everybody
