Anticipating a huge rush in view of Christmas and New Year celebrations, Karnataka Exhibition Authority (KEA) had appealed the State Government to permit an extension of the exhibition for nine days. As KEA received no information regarding the extension sought, the expo was closed as per the original schedule on Dec.27, according to KEA CEO Girish.

Visitors disappointed

In the context of no official announcement regarding the closure of Dasara Exhibition, several visitors, mostly tourists, arrived at the Exhibition Grounds last evening to enjoy the weekend but had to return disappointed. A good number of local residents too had come.
