  1. the road from goaves to piranwadi was 120 feet(as planned). But it is reduced to 110 feet. The remaining 10 feet, 5feet on either sides should be planted with neelgiri trees
    they grow up at faster rate and even provide much more shade
    and even occupies less area

  2. ->Dustbin boxes should be kept at roadside on footpaths where there is public place.

  4. The govt should speed up the construction of new bus stand for the city, as Anand mentioned Cleanliness, hygiene, good toilets and parking space should be provided.
    Frankly I feel on one hand free WiFi hot-spots, hi-tech bus sheds all sound good but in reality i feel waste management, transportation-roads and basic amenities should be the priority.
    lastly i would like to wrap up by saying that not all bad is happening in our city, the excellent laser show, night bazaar at fort lake are some good examples to name a few. the lake stands clean and stunning in the evening and is a delight to watch at the entrance of the city.

  5. First woukd like to ask the question ? Wat do you mean by smart city? Smart city means same like smart phone , compare to old Cell phone Like old was with limited features key paid ,, etc First v should Hve a list That Wat comes in smart city , Indrastucture , connectivity , development of industries Like food park Coz belagavi has good agriculture land surrounding city N most sanitation , water , gas ,pipe line electricity Develop of tourist place as belgavi has more than 50 places surrounding city Wic can b developed so that tourism industries can Kup up Devlooment in industries area n infrastructure for industries as belgavi is major suppliers of components n parts to automile Industries Like wise Sweets industries , Shahapuri saree Etc N develop extension areas like market malls bus stands airport conectivities bit vin metros n smart cities n nearly Bytourist places inter connectivity by train make double track Etc

  6. Cleanliness and pollution is the major problem which any city is facing today, there are many areas where there is nobody for picking garbage comming out from houses of people. which results in making area dirty. which leads to many dieses like dengue, cholera etc.
    Many vehicles are emitting harmful gasses including vehicles of government officials which leads to heavy pollution and making environment unsafe for living. moreover outside government offices they are burning garbage which leads to pollution. If government officials will harm the environment how can we aspect from common people.
