During the flag hoisting ceremony in Dharwad at 12:00 midnight on the intervening nights of August 14 and 15, Mayor Iresh Anchatgeri and HDMC members raising slogans hailing Bharat Mata.

Hubballi: The Hubballi-Dharwad twin cities will soon be illuminated with energy-efficient LED lights. The Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) will replace the remaining 51,789 conventional street lights, said HDMC Commissioner Dr Gopalkrishna.

He was addressing a gathering after hoisting the national flag at Idgah Maidan on the occasion of the 76th I-Day celebration on Monday, and he stated that a survey has begun to replace conventional street lights with LED lights, and that the work would soon be undertaken under public-private partnership (PPP). He said by replacing over 51,000 street lights with LED lights, HDMC would save millions of units of electricity annually and reduce the financial burden of the corporation.

C&D Waste Processing Project

The civic body is constructing a “C&D Waste Processing Project” at the Scientific Solid Waste Management Project site in Shivalli village. The plant would come up with the financial assistance of the Mines and Geology department. A grant of Rs 5.60 crore has already been released and it would be ready in another few months, he said.

The Commissioner also said that 24/7 drinking water supply would be extended to all the wards in another three years. He said all the wards of the twin cities will get round-the-clock drinking water.

75-foot-tall flag post unveiled

Former minister and MLA Jagadish Shettar inaugurated a 75-ft tall flag post installed at the HDMC central office. Mayor Uma Mukund hoisted the national flag on the regular flag post.

Mayor Iresh Anchathgeri broke the tradition.

Mayor Iresh Anchatgeri broke a tradition which had been followed for decades. The mayor, instead of hoisting the flag at the HDMC central office on Lamington Road, hoisted the flag at the HDMC office in Dharwad.

It was an unwritten rule that the mayor of Hubballi or Dharwad would hoist the flag at the Hubballi HDMC office, but the new mayor broke that rule. He unfurled the flag at the HDMC office in Dharwad at 12 midnight on the intervening nights of August 14 and 15.
