  1. Observing since many years. Not even single new colleg or institute is sanction to Gokak, their 3 elected members in gokak alone, yet not single new project is taken up in Gokak. Whats wrong with such avoidance to development of city. No engineering colleg, medical colleg, not even a pharmacy college, veternary colleg, not single research centre can be seen in the city. The city is having rich facilities. No water problem in entire year, No transportation problems, whats wrong with the govt to grant new colleges to Gokak too.. So please care for such things. Don’t fight for grant as district, fight for facilities what needed. Thank you.

  2. All announcements no concrete measures for Belgaum , ring road, IT park , Airport all just announcement , I am sure Shetter will do best to deprive Belgaum to develop Hubli, there is no mention of Belgaum -Kittur Dharwad rail line

  3. ok Shetter Sir. we agreed that so many development works allotted for belgaum city but question is how many will be execute really on grounds.
