The CM chaired a Cabinet meeting prior to the presentation where the State Budget 2022-23 was approved. This is likely to be the last full-fledged budget before the 2023 Assembly polls. The 2023-24 budget may be presented early next year, but it will be a vote-on-account considering the elections.

Chamundi Hill Ropeway, tourism circuits

The CM announced a slew of projects for Mysuru apart from granting Rs. 89 crore to modernise the K.R. Hospital. A proposal will be sent under ‘Parvatamala Scheme of Central Government’ for construction of a Ropeway in Chamundi Hill of Mysuru and Mullayanagiri Dattapeeta Betta of Chikkamagaluru to promote Tourism.

Hampi – Badami – Aihole – Pattadakallu Vijayapura tourist circuit and Mysuru Srirangapatna – Hassan – Belur – Halebeedu tourism circuit will be developed under the Public Private Partnership model to promote tourism, CM announced.

“It is proposed to create Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) materials for 15 tourist sites of the State at a cost of Rs. 15 crore. This will be implemented for Mysore Palace on a pilot basis,” he said. Better services will be made available to youths by converging various youth centric schemes in the State. This has already been implemented in Mysuru, he noted.

    So, moustached Basavaraj Bommai is expanding Mysore airport to help Wayanad Keralites to get access to link with their Gold smuggling cousins in Gulf States, when Emirates airlines connects Mysore to Gulf States!
    More Malayalees will arrive and build houses in Mysore and nearby town and villages. Mysore-Chennai high speed link will bring in more Tamils too.
    Mysore then will become a massively populated cityh.
    Chamundi Hill Rope way? Not many will use it, as Mysoeans are gripped with car culture, and te hill will flatten in years.

  2. PNR says:

    Only tall talk. Mr. Bommai, please first spend on roads and education system. You are only creating more trouble for peace loving Mysoreans. When will Mysore get a good and stable administration I wonder.

  3. Nataraj says:

    We have already lost our jobs to outsiders as mentioned in the other comment and we have no place to go unless our state supports us by fixing minimum quota of 50% for kannadigas.

    Bommai is hell bent expanding Mysore in a bad way, bringing in Jet liners from Gulf States, not from the Western cities-Kempegowda International Airport is suited for it. This Airport will be the defacto destination for Gulf State airliners.
    I agree with the above poster that Mysore-Chennai high speed trains plus this expanded Airport will suck in Tamils and Malayalees in very large numbers from their overcrowded states and cities to Mysore. Wayanad is just under 3 hours drive and This airport will serve very well for Malayalees who at present smuggle gold through Kerala airports -bribing customs with gold ingots, will turn their attention to this Airport soon. These are criminal gands . Mysore is in for a shock when Malayalees and Tamils swamp the cities and towns.

    What has happened to the promise of Bommai, when he visited Mysuru, after he became the CM, tht he will redevelop Lansdowne Building and Devaraja market to their former glory? There is no budget money for them”
    There goes the ambition of @Barmy Shenoy to develop Devaraja Market as ‘the Grandbazaar like in Istanbul’? We get that that idea was barmy like others by Shnoey, was for attention-seeking purposes!
    Malyalees and Tamils are preparing to swamp the Greater Mysuru with immense glee to settle in vacant lands! The Airport as posters said will connect to the Gulf States and the gold smuggling and other nefarious activities of criminal Malyalee gangs will arrive to Mysore via Wayanad!
    The customs officer at expanded Mysuru airport, will have gold ingots given to them to turn a blind eye to the smuggling.
    It is time for @Gowri Sathya to write another book on the loss of Mysuru as the Royal City!
    Mysoreans start learning Malayalam and Arabic, as minor Sheikhs will arrive too Through Emirates airlines to oversea this city developed as a minor Bangkok!!

  7. Jhunjhunwalla says:

    Hello Mysoreans
    Stop this airport expanding nonsense, before your city becomes a centre of criminal activities bythose Keralites, who have well developed those activities in UAE and Oman.
    My native Mumbai suffered from them, until Keralites developed those international airports in Kerala linking the Middle East countries.These are ruthless Muslims trading in illegalsubstances.
