Gadag: Cricketer Sunil Joshi, who played in 69 one-day international matches for India, has a special affection for Gadag. The cricketer still maintains ties to his hometown and adores Gadag.
He has unmatched love and care for the city; he took to Twitter to draw attention to the fact that Gadag, where he is from, does not currently have a Volvo bus service to Bengaluru. He requested Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to launch the service.

In reply to Sunil Joshi’s tweet, many have asked him to raise his voice for speedy implementation of the new broad gauge line project between Gadag and Yalavigi. They asked him to convince CM Bommai to release funds for this project, as the Union Government will present its budget next month.
Many highlighted the road condition between Gadag and Haveri via Laxmeshwar. Many claimed that the road is in horrible shape and it is better to run the bus between Gadag and Bengaluru via Hubballi.
