Hubballi: Congress Corporator MM Bhadrapur has expressed strong opposition to holding the Hubballi Dharwad Smart City Limited (HDSCL) meeting in a five-star hotel on Gokul Road.

HDSCL has organised a consultation meeting at Dennisson’s Hotel with all 82 corporators to update them on the status of several HDSCL projects. To recall, at a general body meeting, HDMC corporators expressed concern that they were unaware of the Smart City Projects and requested that a meeting be organised with HDSCL officials so that they could learn more about the project; the mayor took this advice into consideration and wrote a letter to HDSCL officials.

HDSCL has organised a consultation meeting at Denissons Hotel with all 82 corporators to update them on the status of several HDSCL initiatives. To recall, at a general body meeting, HDMC corporators expressed concern that they were unaware of the Smart City Projects and requested that a meeting be organised with HDSCL officials so that they could get more details about the project, and the mayor took this advice into consideration and wrote a letter to HDSCL officials to conduct a meeting highlighting the issue.

The HDSCL has scheduled the meeting for October 19 at 5 p.m., as directed by the mayor. However, Congress Corporator MM Bhadrapur has objected to the meeting being held in the star hotel.

He said that the meeting might have been held at Sawai Gandharva Hall, Samskrutika Bhavan, Kannada Bhavan, or any HDMC auditorium, reducing the conference’s expenses significantly. He asked HDSCL authorities to change the venue in order to save the public money.

Aziz Desai, the JMD of HDSCL, spoke with Hubli Express. He stated that he had received a letter from the corporator and that his objection had been forwarded to higher officials, who would decide.
