MLA Abhay Patil’s Question today for IT & Industry:
The Beyond Bengaluru initiative has been announced by the Karnataka government, but it is sad that benefits only extend up to Hubballi-Dharwad and no further. Therefore, I implore the Karnataka government to launch “Beyond Hubballi” in North Karnataka so that Belagavi might acquire certain industries. Said MLA Abhay Patil on Friday.
He further mentioned that Belagavi district MLAs and MPs, as well as representatives from the Belagavi Chamber of Commerce and other business organizations, had met with CM Basavaraj Bommai to demand that the required steps be taken to improve and develop the Belagavi District. It’s to be noted Belagavi CORE Development Group too had submitted Memorandum for IT and Industries in Belagavi to CM via Abhay Patil.
The local industrial bodies and Groups are angry with the state government for its paternalistic treatment of Belagavi, and they have announced that Maharashtra is encouraging Belagavi industrialists to invest there. They have promised a tax credit and reduced land prices. Additionally, the Goa government attracted business owners from Belagavi, offering them single-window clearance and other advantages. Therefore, I want the CM to develop a unique industrial policy for the border district of Belagavi and to build infrastructure to attract the automobile sector.
