With this recommendation by the state govt Belagavi has lost its battle for the establishment of an IIT in Belagavi or even nearby.
Minister R.V Deshpande has urged the Central Government to send a team to assess the suitability of the 3 locations identified by the State.
There were various groups who had pressed for the establishment of the IIT in Belagavi have lost the lone fought battle.
Marathon meetings, resolutions and signature campaigns have not gained anything. Whom to blame is your choice, but one thing for sure we lost a golden opportunity.
