A Legislature Committee headed by Speaker Jagadish Shettar has identified a site near Halaga Bastawad near Belgaum to construct the proposed Suvarna Soudha.
Shettar said the site near Halga Bastawad off NH-4 is ideal location in all aspects, including safety and connectivity. Farmers in the area too have agreed to hand over their land for the purpose, he stated.
Shettar said, as Vaccine Depot is located in the heart of the city; construction of Suvarna Soudha will lead to congestion & people in and around the area the depot would have been badly affected by this project. Hence, a new place was identified on the city outskirts, he pointed out.
At last, the suspense over the Site of the Suvarna soudha is over and we could now expect the construction work to begin in a couple of months. 150 acres is required for the soudha and they have identified the entire area.
