  1. As said by the minister that priority would be given to the Belgaum-Dharwad straight line via-Kittur is the need of the hour and a daily train from Hubli to Mumbal (Dadar or CST) is a must. Hope he does something to this part of the region and people.

  2. Belgaum chambers should have requested for Double track from Hubli to Mumbai on priority for increasing trains & reduction in travel time.

  3. Pls start a train from Belgaum to Hyderabd via Solapur, Gulbargar. We have number of students coming from this area for education purpoes. Now a day Bus charges are very high
