Mysuru Dasara will be simple and traditional: CM


Rs 6 crore allocated for Dasara fest, traditional rituals will continue


The high-level committee meeting chaired by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Friday decided on ‘simple and traditional’ Mysuru Dasara celebrations this year.

Speaking to reporters later, the CM said all the associated rituals such as the inauguration of the fest atop Chamundi Hills, the Jambu Savari and the lighting of the entire city for 10 days will continue. “We have decided to release Rs 6 crore for the celebrations at Mysuru, Chamarajanagar and Srirangapatna,” Bommai said.

The high-level committee has authorised the Chief Minister to select the ‘eminent personality’ to inaugurate the 10-day fest.

Pending Rs 8 crore released

According to the Chief Minister, the meeting also decided to release an amount of Rs 8.09 crore pending for 2019. “I have directed officials to maintain financial discipline and not exceed the grant released for the year,” he said.

The CM noted that several MLAs have requested the establishment of a tourist circuit in the Mysore region and said he would discuss the issue with the Tourism Minister. Tourism had taken a hit due to Covid-19, and steps would be taken to address the issue, he said.

Minister for Cooperation and Mysuru district in-charge minister ST Somashekar, Kannada and Culture Minister V Sunil Kumar, Minister for Urban Development Byrathi Basavaraj, Chief Secretary P Ravi Kumar, MPs, legislators and other elected representatives were present at the committee meeting.
