  1. Ideal building setup for a premiere educational institution, or a set of institutions..
    Why not convert it into an educational institution, if it’s decided no more sessions will happen here..

  2. Suvarna Vidhan Soudha was supposed to meet the hope & aspirations of people of Northern Karnataka. For the name sake the sessions were held which were marred by protests either by Farmers, weavers, Doctors, etc. with no beneficial discussions & relief to

    Can the Govt. take a call and meaningfully discuss the burning issues of North Karnataka.
    Like Upper Krishna Project, Developing Software park in Desur (BGM), Irrigation project of Kalsa Banduri, Land acquisition for RCU, Sugar cane growers problems, pending irrigation projects. etc.

  3. No Person will come and wash our home…

    So Can we have this plan:

    All MLA, MLC and MP belonging to Belgavi District start working once in week from Suvarna Vidhan Soudha Belgavi

    You all can have your Home office or Constituency office, but you should be available for Public Address also in this office once in a week.

    1. And Every month one day Belgavi District MLA, MLC and MP meet under one roof same time, same day and discuss the changeless and development work at the same time.
    2. Even ZP’s and TP’s can be present from all over the district during this time, if required.

    And for please dont bring Party specific or religion hear….
