HUBBALLI: As a precautionary measure, the district administration and HDMC in association with the Young India (YI) and Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) a disinfectant tunnel has been set up at the main entrance of the APMC in Amargol in the City.
District In-charge Minister Jagadish Shettar inaugurated the tunnel today.
