Now, Belagavi KSHIP offices shifted to Hassan, Madikeri

Move comes days after people from north Karnataka alleged step-motherly treatment to the region 

In another order issued on August 7, 2018, works coming under the purview of KSHIP Belagavi subdivision have been handed over to Gokak subdivision.

Offices of the Karnataka State Highway Improvement Project (KSHIP) located in Belagavi have been shifted to Hassan and Madikeri.

The state government, in its orders dated July 27, 2018, has ordered shifting of KSHIP-Belagavi division office to Hassan and subdivision offices to Madikeri.

In another order issued on August 7, 2018, works coming under the purview of KSHIP Belagavi subdivision have been handed over to Gokak subdivision.

Works coming under Baswanbagewadi subdivision in Vijayapur have been handed over to Raichur with the load being shifted to Sakleshpur.

Dharwad subdivision works have been shifted to Shivamogga subdivision.

None of the KSHIP Belagavi division officials were available for comments when DH tried to contact them.

The move has come just days after people from north Karnataka alleged that the Kumaraswamy-led JD(S)-Congress coalition government has been according step-motherly treatment to the region. 

Since a decade, the northern districts of the state have been demanding more divisional offices at Belagavi and also to make it the second capital of the state. The shifting of the KSHIP headquarters has come as a bolt from the blue. 

Recently, seers and activists from north Karnataka staged protests before the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi, demanding to shift some secretariat-level offices.

Currently, the SVS (built at a cost of Rs 400 crore) is the venue for the 10-day-long Winter Session of the legislature and is idle for the rest of the year.
