  1. Please have look at Deshmukh Road at Tilakwadi Belgaum , it’s small croweded lane, where in Car’s are parked on both side of the road 24 hours, making pedestrian’s walking impossible at any time, Tilakwadi Police Station is hardly 100 meters from Deshmukh Road, kindly take up the matter with Traffic Police and arrange to make this lane Vehicle free lane immediately.
