Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar and others visit the meditation pyramid near Nrupatunga Betta in Hubballi on Saturday.

At last, the much talked-about meditation pyramid near Nrupatunga Betta is ready for inauguration, and this structure developed using the funds of Hubballi-Dharwad Urban Development Authority (HDUDA), and Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) will be thrown open for public use on January 16.

Constructed at a cost of Rs 3.5 crore, the pyramid can accommodate at least 600 people at a time for meditation. The work to develop this facility began in 2012 itself, and it was delayed due to legal dispute over the land and other issues. The facility spread over 1 acre and 25 guntas of land is now ready, and it will be inaugurated by Urban Development Minister R Roshan Baig on January 16.

On Saturday morning, Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar visited the pyramid, and stated that citizens can practice yoga and meditation here.

The Yoga Centre at Kanakapura has already come forward to conduct yoga and meditation classes here. Nrupatunga Betta Vayuviharigala Sangha has shown interest to look after the maintenance of the pyramid, he said.

On parks

Along with Nrupatunga Betta Vayuviharigala Sangha members, Mr Shettar visited Nrupatunga Betta also, and assured to take steps for further development of Nrupatunga Betta, Unkal Lake Park, and Indira Glass House park under the Smart City project.

Due to lack of proper maintenance, major parks are in need of further development. Under Smart City project, around Rs 10 crore each can be utilised for their development, he noted.

Govt blamed

"Due to the negligence of the State Government, implementation of several projects including Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) and Smart City are delayed. Chief minister and concerned ministers should take steps to speed up the implementation of projects," Mr Shettar said.

District In-charge Minister Vinay Kulkarni is not holding progress review meetings, but is only speaking arrogantly. How many meetings he has taken to review mega projects being implemented in the twin cities, he asked, adding that officials are not working actively as the government is not showing interest in implementing the projects fast.

Even the renovation of Sawai Gandharva Hall is delayed, and Nirmithi Kendra has not yet installed the air-conditioning system there, he added.

Corporator Veeranna Savadi, S B Barigidad, Dr Mahantesh Tapashetty, Nagesh Kalburgi, and others were present.
