  1. Never ever belagavi will be a clean City, even after three years still the roads are not completed, every sub roads are joined so haphazardly that we can’t even get our vehicle to the main road, everywhere incomplete. Don’t know how people are tolerating. Even the street sweepers aren’t given proper brooms, you can see them dragging a plain plastic sheet in which all the garbage is pushed, sometimes it keeps falling out from behind but never they recollect, at so many roads there are no street lights burning, such is the belagavi corporation
