Suresh Kumar reviewed the performance of Belgaum City Corporation in the execution of developmental works out of the financial grant of Rs 100 crore.
The Belgaum civic body has not utilized the funds already sanctioned by the Govt. and the various works have been delayed for no reason. He further said that it was disheartening to see that even 50% of the funds were not utilized.
A show cause notice will be issued to Belgaum Corporation as there has been no council meet from July. The corporation in reply to this said that file has been forwarded to Mayor but he hasn’t acted upon it.
A team from Bangalore will visit Belgaum and overlook the Urban Development issue and issue of unauthorized constructions. There has been widespread violation of building plans, and many commercial complexes had not provided parking facilities
The minister said the main reason for the mushrooming of unauthorized constructions was the hand glove attitude of the officials and the elected representatives.
