  1. Dear chief minister and the legislators whoever, plz do not waste public money on your winter session. Plz use your salary to stay like common people and utilise the said amount for the benefit and progress of the common man. After all you are using the money from the exchequer. If you fear for your lives then you don’t have the trust of the people. If you have their trust you don’t need to have security. Get the point.

  2. Citizens haven’t elected you crazies to eat up or waste their tax money on your luxuries. Come to your senses and let your consciousness get hold of your heart, your soul as well as your mind.

  3. All MLA and Ministers,
    Should pay from there pocket of Hotel and Travel and food for expenses.
    As they will get salary paid every month.
    Only govt official employees,Should paid expense of 10 days.
    To reduced cost, Better use Belgavi, Dharwad and Baglkot govt employees.
    Oh God ₹31 Cr for 10 Days in the 2017.
    Who was Chief Minister that time, He might be enjoyed Belgavi and near places.
