In the story Smart city consultant appointment stalled as pen drive goes missing which was based on the story published by Sakal, we spoke to Former commissioner of city corporation G Prabhu and he said
Now that I am transferred to Bengaluru to a different department my signature cannot be used by the Belagavi City corporation as I am no authority by law there now.
He further added,
All the hoo-hah created after this story was published is really not warranted as my didigtal signature which is in my name as G Prabhu cant be utilised by my former department. My digital signature is with me and I am using it in my current posting.
Now the Belagavi city corporation must use the digital signature of the newly appointed commissioner, Shri. Kurer.
