DC asks all departments to complete work on exhibition stalls before Sept 20
“Owing to the delay by the zilla panchayat (ZP) in setting up the stalls, the process has taken this long. Those interested can set up stalls and participate in the exhibition,” Randeep said.
Upbraiding the officials for not starting work on the stalls that were reserved, he added, “We should begin work on September 7, and complete it by the 20th. Departments that have reserved stalls need to begin work. Failing to complete work before the deadline will see these departments being allotted stalls elsewhere.”
Also present were Exhibition authority CEO Shashikumar, Agriculture department joint director Soma Sundar, health department officer Prakash and officials from Women and child welfare department and sericulture department.
Subway near palace a hub for nefarious activities
The subway adjacent to Mysuru Palace near the Dasara exhibition grounds has turned into a den for illegal activities. The subway, which was constructed to help the pedestrians to cross to the exhibition side from the palace side has turned into a garbage dump littered with alcohol bottles, human excreta, garbage and condom. The unbearable stench makes it impossible for the pedestrians to use it.
