  1. install also basaveshawar and not yet gardens full belgaum . kids playing garden every area . and sports clubs indoor games club

  2. Why make garden only in BCC compound, Make a garden where there are no gradens in extension areas or some other areas in the city and then place a statue. With this amount I feel you can create not less then 3 to 4 garden. Please wake up BCC.

    I respect for all religion and cummunitys. But hate those people who spend money with out priority.

  3. Why spend mere 1.0 – 1.2 crores on statues and garden. At 5-10 crores must. Statues and Memorials are more important than good road, drainage system, Sanitation, Public dispensary/Hospitals, schools, transport system. SICK!!!

  4. Why only B.R. Ambedkar.
    They should also install Shivaji, Rani chennama, Sangoli Rayanna, Gandhiji, Nehruji etc. etc….
