The office of the Belgaum City Corporation (BCC) was a make shift bar cum restaurant on Sunday. All the elected and nominated corporators, including the Mayor were present and took pleasure in the party organized at the BCC premises.
According to reliable sources, the party was organised by Corporator Sanjeev Prabhu for getting elected as the Chairman of Standing Committee.
A corporator, who attended the party, said that they had availed permission from the Mayor and BCC Commissioner for holding the party. He also said that no liquor was served in the party. However the scene was different. A class-IV employee, who attended the party, confirmed that liquor had been served to the invitees.
BCC Commissioner S G Patil, he said that the corporators had taken his permission for conducting an official meeting along with lunch at the office premises.
“The meeting was expected to continue till late evening,” he said. But Patil denied giving permission to any party to be organised at the BCC office premises.

What can we say to these corporators who we got elected? Nothing can happen as it was a official meeting with lunch. Town has seen many cases of Chiken Gunia and Dengue and the corporation is denying that there is any breakout of both diseases. But the truth is otherwise. Many have been affected by these and the corporation is still waiting for a couple of persons to die and then their eye may open.
There have been only 2 heavy rains so far, and water logging was seen in all parts of the city and also places like Chennamma circle there was water logging, so imagine the work done by BCC. All elected members should have a responsibility and if they don’t adhere to it there should be some mechanism to call them back.
God save Belgaum.
