  1. In my opinion R K Patil cannot be nominated for such a thing. He is an entrepreneur and running his business for own profitability. It would nice if a person who has worked for development for the city is nominated for such a thing. (Please note that nothing against anybody its just a opinion.)

    • Why not a businessman? RK Patil is the first company to get a such huge funding for a Local company which is dam important. We here are not looking if he is making profits or no, we are looking what he has done for Belgaum. He could have started his company in Blore but he started in Bgm because he wanted to be here, no doubt he has offices in US as well…

      • There are so many entrepreneurs who set business in Belgaum City for Best climate,Low cost of living and Utter most important thing Labour cost is very very low. as compare to Bangalore and US It has nothing to do with Development of Belgaum City.

    • Yes,you are perfectly right.No entrepreneur has nothing to do with all other three nominees. There is no comparison ground when we compare the progress achieved by other 3 nominees .

  2. My vote would be for Sandeep Patil the dashing IPS officer (Belgaum SP). The reason why I am voting for him is he brought all Belgaumites together. The Belgaum is not easy city to handle for any IPS officers but he handled it very well and we saw the results last week. We saw historical moments last week which was not happened for last 50 years i.e integrity in different diversity. All credits goes to Mr Sandeep and his good service (Honesty).

    Keep up the good work 🙂
    We need more people like you.

  3. Hi Congrats to all the nominations. It is really sad that there are no female nominations even though Belgaum has produced a lot of them. I personally would like to nominate Tanvi Doddanavar whom i am sure everbody knows for bringing glory to the city year & year again for the past 12 years. Even this year she is the first sportperson to bring the first national medal for the newly formed Rani Channama University. Hats off Tanvi keep it up. Uday you are doing a great job & my best wishes to you & your team at All About Belgaum. One more request you can have a male & one female award also because you cannot keep the both in one group. All the best

  4. It is mr Sandeep patil, for the first time saw the heroism of a police officer,,,,live…attending to the problems of people directly and ensuring it's resolved with immediate action,,,,,,and restoring faith in police..
