  1. Cool

    there are two trains arranged, one is at 10th night and another leaves bangalore on 11th morning, similarly in return journey also

    one leave belgaum on 13th night and another on 14th morning to bangalore … 🙂


  2. God save our city belgaum, these politicos will do city tour survey land and then grab it from our farmers. veer soudh is near halga,bastwad,alarwad,mastmardi where mainly farmers stay now these politician and celebs will see opportunity for their selfish needs and grab it from poor farmers and say we are doing development.
    I wish belgaum remains what it is now atleast some greenery is left and ppl are happy staying in belgaum without any tension of outside world

    • Relax Dude,
      No greenary is going anywhere 🙂
      Veer Soudha is the Mahatama Gandhi memorial building,
      "Congress well compund" premises… (the building is known as "Veer soudha") &
      what you are saying is "Suvarna Vidhan Soudha" the Administrative building.. that is near Halga Bastwad !

    • Stop spewing such a negativity. The majority of the population is for the development. If people like you don't want it, it will be the advantage for cities like Hubli-Dharwad.
      And I'm sure, you will spew the venom then too.

      Instead, come up with more constructive comments like how to avoid/compensate the hardships for the farmers and others due to this development activity. Be a true Belgauite bud! We are finally seeing much desrved development much to the delight of the citizens. Come out of the cocoon!

      • Very well said Sunil. That's hard core positive thinking.
        The present generation is fortunate enough to see this day to TOTAL BEAUTIFICATION of Belgaum.
        I have been a witness to potholes on road un attended for years during my childhood.
        This is surely a WELCOME event that marks the golden days ahead.
