BELAGAVI: The general body meeting of Belagavi City Corporation (BCC) was held on Saturday. The quality of Smart City works carried out in the city was the main issue during the debate hour.

Potholes under smart city project, unscientific canal construction work, water supply with sewage leak, lack of funds, Indira canteen burden on corporation, decline in tax collection, unpaid Rs 17.81 crore from Hescom, payment of wages related to the 138 unauthorised civic workers and so on, led to hot discussions in the BCC meeting that was held at its council hall on Saturday.

Congress corporator Azim Patavegar said it is not known on what basis an award was given to Belagavi Smart City, as BJP members complain that the implementation of electricity polls in the city under the smart city project is not proper. BJP member Hanumant Kongali objected and said it is a matter of pride that the award has been given for the good works of the Smart City project.

Displaying a bottle of contaminated water before the meeting, Congress corporator Reshma said that due to the negligence of Belagavi Smart City officials, a sewerage pipeline was broken in the Ward no.13 area and the drinking water was polluted. After complaining several times, officials had not taken action, she said. MLA Asif Sait said that officials should take immediate action in this regard.

Corporator Rajashekhar Doni said that Hescom had to pay Rs 17.81 crore to the corporation for works related to electricity in the city and urged the authorities to recover the money as soon as possible.

The members demanded that the confusion regarding the recruitment of 138 civil servants should be resolved at the earliest and action should be taken against the guilty.

MP Mangala Angadi sought information regarding the development of the Veerashaiva burial ground in Ramatheertha Nagar for which Rs 1.5 crore was sanctioned due to the efforts of then minister Suresh Angadi.

The members demanded that the issuing of birth and death certificates should be simplified and that the model of other districts should be followed.

Mayor Shobha Somanache, who gave a ruling on the vendors’ issue near Shivaji Garden, instructed officials to impose cleanliness and allow street vendors to do business.

Deputy mayor Reshma Patil and Corporation officials were present.
