  1. Congratulations to our New I.G.P. One important issue I would like to bring to our New IG. A week ago I visited to the I.G. Bungle side wherein Helipad is located. After I proceeded from the excise building towards helipad ground I found that lorries were unloading the wastage on the Road side. Why there is no control or check by any authority either by MCC, Excise or Police. Please keep a check on these public nuisances and avoid unhealthy atmosphere in such a beautiful heights.
