New events to make Mysuru Dasara even more grand
This year’s Dasara celebrations in the district will include new events that will make the much-awaited festivities even more exciting and attractive with the newly-formed government resolving to celebrate the annual spectacle in keeping with the traditions practised over the decades.
Newly-appointed Minister in-charge of Mysuru district V. Somanna, after the first meeting of Dasara Executive Committee with the elected representatives, at the Deputy Commissioner’s office here on Saturday, told reporters that a committee headed by Mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath has been constituted to suggest new events akin to how Shobha Karandlaje, MP, had begun certain events when she was district Minister years ago.
Mr. Somanna said Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa had directed the continuing with traditional celebrations despite the problems caused by recent floods in the State. Also, a sum of ₹18 crore had been sanctioned for the celebrations in all its grandeur. New programmes will be announced soon, he added.
