  1. Ha Ha ! Don’t worry Engineer our local people’s representatives will hire the most powerful Lawyers for you . Obviously it is an open secret that U were awarded the post to serve them , so they have and will protect u
    Really feel pity for your children and wife
    You have shattered their lives

  2. Majority of Smart City projects are big scam. This engineer is just a small fish. Contractors and lobby work hand in gloves to make money.
    Any construction contract and road making are big opportunity to make money! And most smart city works ends up in these categories.

    Unless there is transparency in plan approval, costings, bidding and completion certificates, there is no way of getting rid of this menace.

  3. ಇಂಥಾ . ಹೆಗ್ಗಣಗಳು ಸೇರಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದರಿಂದಲೇ ಬೆಳ‌ಗಾವಿ ನಗರದ ಸ್ಮಾರ್ಟ್ಸಿಟಿ ಯೋಜನೆಯಡಿಯ ಕೆಲಸಗಳೆಲ್ಲ ಅಧ್ವಾನವಾಗಿದ್ದು, ನಗರವೆಲ್ಲ ಗಬ್ಬೆದ್ದು ಹೋಗಿದೆ! ಕಾಮಗಾರಿಗಳಿಗೆ ನಿಗದಿತ ಅವಧಿಯೇ ಇಲ್ಲದಂತಾಗಿ ದಶಕದ ಯೋಜನೆ ಎನಿಸುವಂತಾಗಿದೆ. ಇಂಥವರನ್ನು ಕಠಿಣ ಶಿಕ್ಷೆಗೆ ಒಳಪಡಿಸಬೇಕು!

  4. Very Good. More such raids should take place only then will we see a non-corrupt society. Unfortunately, no action is taken against these officials and they will join duty soon.

  5. Now is the time to open up everyone’s eyes and see why our Belgavi is a potholes city rather than a Smart city! Chain of corruption need to stop in order to move the city forward.

  6. 23plus lakhs cash just imagine the daring with which he is taking bribe, corrupt
    How much land
    Other wealth he might be having ,this is nothing there are other big fishes
    It’s time to close all government departments
    And give all to private and on contract
    This government officers live life like king,
    Even the school going children of peon of government offices spend daily Rs 1000 to 1500 per day just we can only imagine
    This Engr will be enjoying suspension of half paid leave untill enquiry because he can’t take more leaves his leaves would have almost finished
    and he will join with bigger post within 1 or 2 months without any shame and with double daring, because before he was having some fear of being caught now he was already caught that’s it;
    Great keep it up
