Mysuru: Commotion prevailed at the Spandana Centre in DC’s Office here yesterday, where tickets for the Jumboo Savari and Torchlight Parade are being sold with hundreds standing in a serpentine queue to purchase tickets.
There was utter chaos as only one ticket was being given per person which irked the public. They said that they wanted to buy tickets for their family members and guests who had come from far off places just to witness the grand finale and added that they cannot bring their family members and guests, some of them seniors and make them stand in the line for hours.
But the person issuing tickets expressed his helplessness as he was only following instructions from his higher ups to issue one ticket per head.
As the commotion escalated, ADC T. Yogesh and Revenue officials rushed to the spot only to be targeted by the public who vented their anger and tried to close the ticket counter but were pacified by the Police.
Later, as one ticket per head was issued under Police security, some members left without purchasing tickets.
Additional counters: Meanwhile, the authorities have decided to open eight more ticket counters at the DC’s Office to clear the rush. While Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 is being charged for tickets to witness Jumboo Savari, Rs. 250, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 is being charged for tickets to Torchlight Parade.
