December 1 was the muhurat for the breaking ceremony for the new Commissioner of police office in Belagavi and Shri Basavaraj Bommai, Home Minister of the state was here to do honors at the police lines site.
But as per the report of the Praja Vani the minister was not happy with the design.
After seeing the design and maps the minister was disappointed on the over all plan and said
You are not constructing any govt hostel here, it is prestigious Police Commissioner office, Plan could have been better
He also suggested a few changes to the design approved.
Mysuru got it’s new Commissioner office which was recently inaugurated in November has attractive architecture and is constructed on the lines of Lalitha Mahal Palace. The building has six small domes on its sides with a big dome in the centre and the new ivory white coloured building is spread over 4,268 sq. ft. Simon and Associates are the architects and the building was constructed by Manipal Energy and Infrastructure Limited. The new eco-friendly building is constructed in the 19th century heritage style.
And office in Belagavi looks dull and just like the minister said a hostel.
When money is being spent, it should be spent so that the outcome is also good.
Commissioner of Police Belagavi will be built at the site of City Police Lines College Road, behind the RLS Campus on 2 acres of land.
From August 1, 2014, Police Commissionerate for Belagavi was made operational and IGP Bhaskar Rao was the first Commissioner of Police.
But from day one the Commissioner of Police did not have an office of its own. Since the beginning, it is housed in the SP office.
Then there were plans to shift the office to the half-built Police Gymkhana building at Sangolli Rayana Circle, but that to did not work out.
