A story published by the Bangalore Mirror says – CM SAYS 60,000-SQMT SUVARNA SOUDHA HAS NO SPACE TO HOUSE GOVT OFFICES.
Chief minister Siddaramaiah in reply to a question by BJP MLC from Belagavi Mahantesh Kavatagimath said the state government had decided not to transfer any of its offices from Bengaluru, or other part of the state, permanently to Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi. “If an office of any department, board or corporation is shifted permanently to Suvarna Soudha, it will lead to congestion during the legislative session.”
The government has decided not to move any of its offices to Belagavi — citing ‘lack of space’. CONGESTED? Sprawled over 127 acres in Halaga village on the outskirts of Belagavi, the fourstoreyed Suvarna Soudha has a built-up area of 60,398 sq mt. According to the CM’s reply, the building is too congested to hold any government office.
