  1. Real celebrations should be after successful commissioning of Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the Belgaum.. at present most of the sewage is going to Bellary nallah without even pre-treatment… this is the main for ground water contamination in the city premises..!
    Jai ho…!

  2. @Vishal… I totally agree with you. It is good to know that Belgaum has been given an award, just to know that Delhi knows there is place known as Belgaum…. But the increasing population of the city and water supplied every two to three days makes it a joke…….I really don't understand the fact on which the award in given..
    Jai Hind

  3. Well Well Well.. this award is for the corporation, the real employees, like the engineers, officers and others who worked to excel and achieve it, it has no contribution of the corporators. (corporators were busy fighting on border dispute)
    Thank you real time employees (appointed by the govt) specially the corporation comissioner, Congratulations.
