In a reply to a question asked by J G Patil (Congress) in question hour, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said, “Though `450 crore has been spent on the Soudha, it is not well-planned. The rooms designed for the chief secretary and principal secretaries are too small.”
It was not possible to shift government departments from Bengaluru to Belagavi as the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha here was flawed in design.
However, meetings of various Cabinet sub-committees and legislature committees, besides review meetings of various departments, are being held here to make good use of the structure, he added in his reply.
The mega structure built at a cost of Rs.450 crores and crores are spent n maintaining the same each year. The SVS is used only for 10-15 days once a year for the winter session and for the other part remains closed.
