  1. Very Glad to hear that the Belgaum Railway station will be upgraded to Airport status. Its glad news that Belgaum will have many Trains. However the completion of Railway Electrification work between Miraj-Londa is not mentioned.

  2. This is great for BELGAVI and this also count as dewali gift from our HONERBLE MOS Mr. Suresh Angdi sir also we request one daily train for Delhi and Kolkata which will be helps n numbers of people to connect BELGAVI.

    Lot of thanks sir

  3. Angadi sir please Bangalore New Delhi rajdhani express train route Karnataka ki second capital city se bhi jana chahiye
    Sir please think about it. Belgaum route se koi bhi premium train nahi hai.

  4. First the basic need of proper road is not being completed… The smart city is becoming dumb day by day because of the delay in development… Cities selected after Belgaum as smart cities have done more development than Belgaum… Every work Undertaken is either incomplete or completed pathetically… For ex one can visit from 3rd gate to VTU… So many pot holes…

  5. ಅಂಗಡಿ ಸರ್ ತುಂಬಾ ಒಳ್ಳೆ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ . ಅದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಅವರನ್ನು ಹೃತ್ಪೂರ್ವಕವಾಗಿ ಅಭಿನಂದಿಸುತ್ತೇನೆ

  6. Mr. Angadiji……also think of having a good train for Pune & Mumbai cities as well. Please do not bring any political issue in this suggestion. However one can note that there are many bus operators between Belgaum and Mumbai / Pune

  7. “हुबली” से “वाराणसी”
    के बीच
    “लोंढा-बेलगाम(बेलगावी)-मिरज-पंढरपुर-लातुर-परली वैजनाथ-परभणी-अकोला-इटारसी-जबलपुर” होकर नई ट्रेन शुरू किजिए|

    महोदय इस ट्रेन के चलने पर “महालक्ष्मी संस्थान,कोल्हापुर- पंढरपुर- परली वैजनाथ ज्योर्तिलिंग- हिंगोली स्थित, औंढानागनाथ ज्योर्तिलिंग- गजानन महाराज संस्थान, शेगाव” इत्यादि तिर्थस्थान का वाराणसी से संपर्क होगा और बेलगाम का मराठवाडा-विदर्भ से भी|

  8. First the Auto mafia at Railway station should be reigned in. The prepaid counter operator is in cahoots with them. Disappears when trains arrive. No police monitoring of prepaid counter. Should be operated by Traffic police, like in Bengaluru and Mysuru.

  9. Good heartening and welcome news for the Belagavis- However once these railways projects are completed, the up-keeping and maintaining the Station area clean, the onus will then be the upon the citizens of Belagavi…

  10. Of course electrification work between Miraj-Londa subsequently taken up after doubling. Already doubling work completed between Ghatprabha- Chikkodi road.
