200 ft. flag post at Fort Lake proposed

MLA Feroz N. Sait has proposed to install a 200 ft. long magnificent flag post at the Fort Lake within the lake at the entrance of the city.

“The flag post will instil nationalism and patriotic fervour among the public. I was inspired by the national flag hoisted at the national military memorial in Bengaluru and decided to install a similar post at Fort Lake,” he said here on Sunday.

Mr. Sait, who showcased various works taken up in his Belagavi North assembly constituencies before the mediapersons during his consecutive second term as MLA, said the lake and the island was attracting a few species of migratory birds every year and some had made it their home permanently. The need of the hour was to change the shape of the city into an environmentally clean and beautiful city.

He said the proposal in this regard had been already sent to the government, which was expected to accord approval soon. The details of the project would be worked out once the government gave green signal.
