  1. Stop fooling the public with such silly Marathons, If the director of belgaum next wants to do something real good for the general public, why does he not raise the Auto rickshaw metering issue. Let him prove that he has the will and detemination to do this. This is what the general public needs for a start, then only the Aam admi join such groups.

    • buddy we need critics like you, so that we can really do something worthwhile and useful for aam adaami, this marathon is a pre-event to create awareness for the conference we are doing in the month of july on development, plz be a part of it.


    • KRV is no where in the picture this is like minded people coming on a single board. BGM Next has no language bias and it was formed only after this was decided

  2. when can u arrange cyclothon. Contact Tube Investments, manufacturers of Hercules and BSA bicycles, for sponsoring the event.

    anyways very best of luck for this event as well as future endavours

    P.S. No politicians next time.

  3. I am worried if the politicians will spoil this cause… No doubt AAB is going good in this matter, but involving of politicians (not blaming any one in particular, but agn, where there are polticians, there comes politics)

    Anyways.. All the best to Belgaumnext & AAB.. I know the marathon will be a success..
