Belagavi: It is common that elected representatives use high-end vehicles while visiting their constituencies. However, here is an MLA who uses a bicycle to review the progress of developmental works in his constituency.
Abhay Patil, MLA of Belagavi South is the person who has opted for the bicycle over luxury cars to inspect the developmental works on Sunday, June 14. He travels in a bicycle and inspects the developmental works in his area and also gives important instructions to the smart city officials.
After inspecting the work, Patil told reporters that once in a week he has planned to visit his constituency in a bicycle. “If we meet people, it helps us to know the actual problems of the public. Hence, I decided to use a bicycle during the weekend to learn about the problems of people,” he said.
Meanwhile, MLA Patil informed that he had understood problems in collecting and disposing of solid waste. “If the concerned department officials fail to take proper measures to handle solid waste management, we are planning to launch a campaign to dump waste into the cars of concerned officials,” he cautioned.
