Why Only Belgaum should suffer

The below news post shows the possiblity of Belgaum's potential for its strategic location, unfortunately governments interest and lcal politicians will power never came togather for making anything good happen here , I pity this system and "Koi fark nahi padta kind of attitude".
Its a lesson that neither Karnataka nor Maharashtra have any interest in Belgaum its we the people (Belgaumites Kannada-marathi-Urduand everyone)need to make the differnce , just imagine if this project get executed what can be the benefits.
We would have elctrified rail network in North Karnataka , with Local serivce between Belgaum Hubli-Dharwad and Bagalkot.
We would never need to stand in long queues for gas refills.
We would have enough power to galvanize industrial growth in the region,but it all end with only "We Would have", where as Why not "We Must have" otherwise. Think.....!!!!!!!

New Delhi, June 27
As the Dabhol LNG terminal cum 2184 MW power project nears resolution, the smell of well-priced gas is drawing consumers. Karnataka is now seeking to shift its failed 1400 mw Bidadi project to Belgaum, closer to the terminal, if it can secure gas supplies from the Dabhol terminal.In a recent letter to Union power secretary Mr RV Shahi, the Karnataka chief secretary Mr Mishra has sought supply of 6 mmscmd gas from the Dabhol regassification terminal. Talks will be initiated with Gail in this regard, Mr Mishra said in his letter.The desire to procure Dabhol gas is founded in its competitive terms. Gail, one of the two promoters in the Dabhol project, expects to procure gas at under $4.2 per mmbtu, which translates into a fuel cost of around Rs 1.40 per unit. Adding another 90 paise unit towards fixed costs — costs incurred towards servicing debt and equity required to fund the power plant — the tariff will be Rs 2.40 per unit, which makes it price competitive.This arithmetic is the basis for revival of the Dabhol plant, and Karnataka is hoping to emulate it by setting up a plant at Belgaum and source gas from the spare LNG capacity at Dabhol. The Dabhol 2184 MW power project will utilise only 2.2 milion tonnes of the 5 million tonnes re-gassification terminal capacity, that is over 90% complete.The proposed Belgaum project represents a large capacity consumer who is potentially credible, considering that the state is pegged high on the reform score card. However, it might not be in line with Gail’s own priorities as the public secto gas major seeks to develop a gas grid and undertake retail sales.The proposal to set up a project at Belgaum is Karnataka’s third attempt to secure gas and set up a power project. Way back in 2002, Unocal exited the project promoted by the state-owned Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd.Following that, KCPL decided to go it alone, promoting the Bidadi project as an inter-state mega project with the explicit intention of entering into a power purchase agreement with a power trader, Power Trading Corporation Ltd. The bid to solicit fuel supply failed early this year, when none of the qualifying Companies submitted price proposals. These included Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Indian Oil Corporation and Reliance.

Belgaum: Two physically challenged swimmers from Belgaum are striving to join the ranks of those who have conquered the English Channel.
Rajesh Shinde (21) and Raghavendra Anvekar (22) are all set to swim across the English Channel from England to France on July 25.
The Channel Swimming Association has given its approval for the swimmers who are preparing for the feat, according to Umesh Kalghatagi, event coordinator, here on Tuesday.
He told The Hindu that physical limitations had never come in the way of Mr. Shinde and Mr. Anvekar in accomplishing their dream tasks. Both of them are members of the Aquarius Swim Club of Belgaum. They started their preparations for this task over two years ago to build endurance and grip over long-distance swimming, he said.
They have swum more than 1,000 miles till today as part of their preparation. They were swimming for six hours to 10 hours at different times of the day, he said. They were also having early morning and overnight training sessions, Mr. Kalghatagi said.
As part of the preparation, they will swim for 10 hours from 8 p.m. at the Rotary Corporation Swimming Pool in Belgaum city on Wednesday.
While crossing the English Channel they will face challenges such as extreme and frequently changing weather conditions, low water temperature (not exceeding 15 degrees Celsius) and swimming with and against the tides in salty water, he said. The swimmers would not be allowed to touch either the pilot boat or any person on the boat. Violating this rule would result in their disqualification, he added.
Mr. Anvekar has participated in several national and international competitions. He has won one gold medal, five silver medals and seven bronze medals in tournaments held in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Taiwan. He has also won 27 gold medals in various national-level tournaments.
Mr. Shinde has bagged four gold medals, four silver medals and one bronze medal at the competitions held in Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. He has won 27 gold medals in national-level tournaments.

Dalmia Cement Factories are comming up at Belgaum & Gulbarga

Dalmia Cement to ramp up production
Story from The Hindu Business line
13 Feb 2008

Tiruchi, Feb. 13 Buoyed by the unprecedented demand for its Vajram brand in 2006-07, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd aims to become a national player by ramping up its production capacity to 25 million tonnes in two phases.

J. V. Gungune has been appointed as Deputy Executive Director (Head of Project) at Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd. Based in Belgaum, Karnataka, Mr. Gungune will play an important role in the execution of Belgaum project. Prior to joining Dalmia Cement, Mr. Gungune was Senior Vice President (tech) with Aditya Cement.

Under phase 1, the company, along with its associate Orissa Cement, will expand production capacity to 15 million tonnes over the next few years. Under phase II, the company plans to start production units in Belgaum, Gulbarga, Rajasthan and Megalaya. With a strong presence in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, the company has already extended its reach to Karnataka and plans to enter Andhra Pradesh by mid-2008, Mr T. Venkatesan, CEO and Whole-Time Director, Dalmia Cement, told media persons on Tuesday.
Works on the company’s new plants at Ariyalur and Cuddappah, each with production capacity of 2.5 million tonnes, are in progress. Both these plants would be commissioned within a year. Against last year’s production of 2.7 million tonnes, the company is poised to reach the level of 3.5 million tonnes by March.
He added that the company was in the process of expanding its dealer base in the southern States from 2,000 to 3,000. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd has launched the Dalmia Institute of Construction to empower rural youth with employable skills.

The facility that would be functional from May is expected to address the shortage of trained professionals faced by the construction industry.

The free training programme is open for students above 18 years who have passed 12th std or completed a polytechnic course. Faculty for the training will be drawn from industry and the Dalmia group. Practical training in cement and its usage will be provided at the Dalmiapuram factory while on site training on the latest trends in construction would be imparted by reputed builders among the company’s clients, Mr. Venkatesan said.

Mr Venkatesan launched the facility on Tuesday in the presence of the company’s senior functionaries including Mr P. Acharya, Mr V. Balasubramanian and Mr S. S. Jain

Why State Govt is not using Money alloted for Belgaum

We all are aware about the budget allotment for Belgaum ie 50 crores for State Captial Building and 10 crore for Airport, (incase if we are dividing 100 crore by 10 Airports in the state including the new one at Hassan, Bijapur Raichur and Gulbarga Shimogga).

A sum of 15 crore was relased aerlier for expansion , but nothing yet haappned at belgaum the runway carpeting was finsihed recently , the VIP terminal and restoring HIRL and apron expansion is still at large , the state government is not taking interest in Land acquistion.

Our district representatives are busy with election and Language diplomacy diverting people, Why and How far will it go this way , We Belgaumites need to think on this,

What do you all say ????

Belgaum Boy Uday Kindjawdekar Keeps Belgaum update

It was nice associating Uday sinec he started Belgaum Blog and kept Belgaumites update in fact i was in regular touch with District information officer at NIC to keep information up to date and also improve the out look of shabby website they have so far created and maintained on Belgaum, the efforst were far more from not even a try, the web sites have remained as usual.
I personally applaud Uday for his efforts

Please read the commendable effrosts of his been published by The Hindu

Belgaum corporation website not updated for five months
Website does not have information on job scheme
Belgaum: Karnataka takes pride in being the torchbearer of the information technology sector in the country.
But the initial enthusiasm about e-governance seems to be on the wane with the passage of time, thanks to the failure to update official websites. Many websites posted by the State Government have not been updated for long.
Under the National Informatics Centre (NIC), the Government had facilitated web services to its various departments, institutions and organisations by equipping them with computers and Internet facilities. The objective was to facilitate quick access to “information” to the people.
The citizens visiting the official portals are often disappointed to see them not updated. Uday Kinjawadekar, a computer expert who has posted his own blog to provide information on various aspects and events happening in Belgaum city and district.
A glaring example is found with official portals on Belgaum City Corporation and Belgaum Zilla Panchayat. It is more than five months since the civic elections were held (September 28, 2007). But the corporation website does not display names of any corporator. Today, it is more than 24 hours since the mayoral elections. Yet, there is no one in the corporation’s “Computer Room” to display the names of Mayor, Deputy Mayor and councillors. The “birth and death” section does not display any figure.
Interestingly, despite commencement of mayoral term since March 4, the corporation website continues to display the name of Deputy Commissioner M.E. Shivalingamurthy as Administrator of the civic body.
Although the State Assembly was dissolved three months ago, the names of Ramesh L. Kudachi, Abhaykumar Patil and Manohar Kinekar continue to be displayed as Vidhan Sabha members. The Belgaum district website providing information about the zilla panchayat is no different.
There is no information about the centrally sponsored National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, which is being implemented in the district for the past one year.
The related page is blank. If some body wants to know about the “Projects Planned” and “Ongoing projects” in the zilla panchayat, the web pages continue to display “coming soon”. The last information about the Western Ghats Development Programme available refers to October 2001.
The other pages on various schemes and programmes have not been updated since 2003-04 and 2004-05. Mr. Kinjawadekar says hardly any government portal is found updated. While it is so important to be number one in the IT sector in the country, it is equally important for the government departments and organisations to update their websites. Otherwise, the objective of providing accurate and quick information to the citizen will be defeated, he said.

Stop linguistic groupism

I am surprised over the silly fight in Zilla parishad threatening of particular linguistic identity for the support of formation of group supporting a particular mayor based on language , MP’s and MLA’s are threatened, it looks more uncivilized act.

I believe we must not be lingual fanatic, why cant we people of Belgaum think unilateral and work for progress and development of ward , blocks, area and city , instead people are threatening Urdu group Marathi group Kannada group , MP’s MLA’s what is this going on, for me all these seems to be cheap.

We the youth of Belgaum need to understand and stand apart form this groupism , it doesn’t matter what language we speak, these old thugs or so called coporators or whatever elected members, if carry some good sense then let them understand to make Belgaum a peaceful city for everyone.

I request all KRV activist, who can thrive youth movement and try to evict Kannada based agendas and support city and its people based agenda and it is only we youth can make difference.

I myself know five languages, Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Punjabi and Konkani and feel proud as have soul of Indian first. We are forgetting that all these languages have originated from Sanskrit, our genetic roots tells us we were all one then, India was vast from Burma to Iran borders, Think Why we have shrunk today and left with what, hatred among ourselves for just a matter of language.

We should believe in city with civic amenities of water, drainage, roads infrastructure, public transport and clean and green Belgaum no matter who do it, and everyone live in peace and harmony.

This is not a dream but can be reality, I call on the youth of Belgaum to become coroporators , bureaucrats do join politics but with fair and better image of yourself and then bring in the change, Youth constitutes the largest chunk of modern Indian population but if we still lack to live together we will never have a better city , a state or country for coming generation.
