The proposed foundation stone laying function of the new Income tax building near the fort which was scheduled to be held at 8.30 AM on February 9, 2014 has been postponed. Sources close to the department said this.
The postponement was done after the receipt of a communication from New Delhi and new dates would be notified later.
Sources have also informed that MP Suresh Angadi has spoken to Union Minister of State for Finance Seelam, who was supposed to come for the ceremony to postpone the function as there have been protests against the same.
It may be recalled that there were memorandums given against the constructing of this building near the ancient fort by Sri Ram Sena and AAP yesterday. Today Activists of Ram sena were even taken into custody as they tried to stall the work on the site.

It’s a double tragedy for Belgaum. One, honest taxpayers who are paying lakhs and crores of rupees are made to visit IT offices which are presently functioning from rented premises with basic amenities.
Second, all those espousing care and concern for Killa, please clean it up dirty walls covered with trees and shrubs. More importantly, do they guts to do same for shifting of vegetable market?
It’s all double speak. Losers are Belgaum city and honest taxpayers like us.
I agree with you to certain extent , but also firmly believe in restoring and protecting our historical heritage site, and yes the corrupt machinery should first mover out the stink and dirt vegetable market out from Cantonment land,
The IT building can come up at vast land acquired by government near southern and eastern part of Belgaum, but some vested interest entities are only looking on to cash on it with some land mafias for their future malicious intentions.
