Discriminatory policy of State Government

Aerospace park planned near Bangalore airport
Thursday, 12 Nov, 2009
Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) has acquired land for the proposed 1,000-acre aerospace park to be developed near the international airport at Devanahalli in Bangalore. The park will include an aviation MRO-related activities (maintenance, repair, overhaul) and 250 acre of an export-oriented aerospace SEZ. The SEZ is to be developed by KIADB and is expected to become operational from June 2010.

The above piece of news was in highlights along the launch of India’s first Aerospace SEZ QUEST at Belgaum. There is a loud noise on decongestion of Bangalore, A government committee for regional imbalance, spreading evenly industries across the state. Then Why today such extra announcements? Why can’t an Government Aerospace Park shapes up near Belgaum ? Belagum can have Public sector players such as HAL and NAL. This is utter case of discrimination against Belgaum development rising to competition with in the state; I bet they will sell land at very cheaper rate to attract foreign establishment and the land would remain for long periods vacant, but QUEST is much organized so will thrive up and flourish better.
Belgaum best suits for MRO facilities, the government has already paid the farmers in Sambra and Balekundri for additional 370 acres of land acquired around airport the present Airport is on 450 acres of land, Why not develop MRO at Belgaum The MRO (Maintain Repair Overhaul) just need some additional ware housing some new siding bays and hangers along with additional taxi way. Belgaum Airport is situated out of city the place is already a semi sub urban part with cosmopolitan crowd of Defense establishment and being having good scope of Academic thrust of some new collages coming up in the area.
Present Belgaum Airport

It had happened in past with Belgaum a thriving hub of auto component sector and back bone for Pune auto ancillaries, till date haven’t got an automobile plant or industry though one got sanction was driven away by Greedy MP’s and MLA’s of Dharwad/Hubli what are we waiting for more projects to get eyewash and missed out or driven away.
This is how MRO would be based here

This is how it would look like
Now you all think over How should be the government Policies should be discriminatory like this or prove voice of equality towards the entire state, where are the people/Politicians /Think tanks who calls for fight on injustice to north Karnataka and are mum today, besides have forgotten the support garnered for SWR railway head quarter at Hubli. Is not Belgaum In North Karnataka didn’t we fight then for this cause, though pity we still have not got Dharwad Belgaum rail line and trains to capital city of Bangalore, and Bangalore Mysore line is taken up for doubling.
My anguish is over this attitude of government towards Belgaumites as second class citizen and time has come to ask them to stop this Let me see after reading this, How many voices will be rising , and more importantly Who will hear it, will it go through MPs MLA and Official dignitaries of Belgaum .
Make a difference for living in this society (though bounded by Linguistic territorial boundaries) We do are much dignified, cannot be ignored!!!!

Surprise to note that only people in North Karnataka are raising this issue. What happened to people in Malnad region like Chikkamagalore, Shimoga, Tarikere. The VISL at Bhadravati is sinking but still there is no revival plan. where is the question of state development? The Karnataka state means only Bangalore for these MPs and MLAs.


Just by blogging on the net u cannot acheive anything..
you need to channelise your energy in the right direction and make a concentrated effort, only then can we see some results.
