Abhay Patil, MLA Belagavi South yesterday presented a proposal at the council meeting of City Corporation of Belagavi regarding statue installation of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji at Shri Basveshwar Circle, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Marg and Statue of Veer Sambhaji Maharaj at Veer Sambhaji Chowk Angol.
Abhay Patil said, this was a very long demand of the residents of Belagavi and I am happy to let you all know that City Corporation has unanimously accepted my proposal and respected the feelings of Belgaumites. The statue work will begin shortly and the installation is expected to be completed within 18 months.
Also statue of Maharshi Valmiki at Maharshi Circle near Jinabkul at Bauxite road would be installed.
Currently, not many circles in the city adorn statues in the circle other than Rani Chennamma circle and the recently put up Gandhi Statue near Hindalga road.
