The State government withdrawn order on shifting the office of Karnataka Neeravari Nigam Limited (KNNL) to Belagavi from Dharwad.
The order, which was criticised by the Opposition and opposed strongly by farmers organisations, was withdrawn on Monday
Veeresh Sobaradmath Swami, president of the Raita Sena said that We requested government to shift Bengaluru offices to Belagavi’s suvarna soudha, but shifting exiting North karnataka offices to suvarna soudha is condemnable.
On Sunday, a delegation led by Sobaradmath Swami and advocate and activist B.D. Hiremath met Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi in Belagavi asking him to allow the KNNL office to continue to work in Dharwad. Mr. Jarkiholi had assured them of requisite action.
