Hubballi: Congress corporator MM Bhadrapur, who represents ward number 53, has demanded a written answer from Hubballi Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) Commissioner Dr Gopal Krishna on the renovation of the offices of the Mayor in Hubballi and Dharwad, the deputy mayor, chairmen of all the four standing committees, and the leader of the opposition. He wondered why the renovation work was initiated now. Was it so important and urgent?
He asked the commissioner from which grant the HDMC would make payment of the bills to the contractor who is doing renovation work. He alleged that the work was of poor quality, hence, before releasing the amount, the commissioner should form a committee of officers and, based on the report they provide, the amount has to be released to the commissioner, said Bhadrapur.
Congress alleged that renovation of office was not unnecessary and the corporation has spent money recklessly, they are smelling a rat in this work as well.
