  2. 3rd class city with no roads, what to do with airport? Worst MP Mr. Joshi has already ruined Hubli-Dharwad with BRTS and is doing further damage with his schemes. God save the city from him.

  3. Funny, ridiculous, meaningless.
    Hubballi competing with Belagavi and Belagavi competing with Hubballi. Wake up. We have larger interests to achieve..water environment health ease of life good education ….. Each city has a unique position to serve larger interest of the state and country and the world. How long are we going to keep competing with each other? Is there no end to it. Is this how we are going to make this earth a better place? If competition is going to foster better facilities than compete with bigger TIER 2 and 3 cities in the country. Hubballi Belagavi should become unique cities…smart clean meaningfull.

    1. A healthy competition is good for all competitors. Wish whole of north Karnataka grow along with Mangalore and Bangalore.
      We may suggest as many ways to boost the Hubli air port.
      Mainly places of connectivity time schedules to be displayed at Hotels and all prominent places.
      People are aspirant and economically in a position to travel also have emergencies and necessities but lack of publicity and easy accessibility forced to go for other modes.
      Authorities has to plan for this.

  4. Kindly request official to start Ahemabad . Delhi. Jaipur flight because there are lot of North Indian in hubli and traveling buy train will take around two days
