45 councilors from the Belagavi City Corporation have yet again embarked on a journey to Mysuru on Sunday to learn about Smart City mission implementation.
Last week only the Belagavi City Corporation (BCC) seems to be facing insolvency going by the fact that it is struggling to pay its employees and clear electricity dues. The city corporation owes Rs 18 crore to its employees including pourakarmikas and various service and infrastructure supply agencies.
BCC hasn’t paid the salary of 1,099 pourakarmikas for three months and computer operators for seven months. Electricity bills have been pending since the past several months. BCC also owes dues to agencies like Ramkey Infrastructure company, which operates solid waste management plant at Turmuri.
The term of the councilors will end in March 2019 and what will be the use of the training given in these two days only God can tell.
A couple of Months back, the councilors had been to Shimla for a tour.
