Disneyland at KRS is my brainchild; will go ahead with project: CM Kumaraswamy

February 21, 2019

Mandya: Even as farmer organisations including Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha have opposed the Disneyland-like amusement park at Krishna Raja Sagar (KRS) Dam and Brindavan Gardens, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has said that he is committed to establish the amusement project as it is his brainchild.

He told press persons here yesterday night: “It is my brainchild. I will ensure that the project is implemented. I pray with folded hands to those opposing the project to support it.”

The CM clarified that the project would not harm the safety of KRS and the government would not acquire lands of the farming community to implement it. “The government is firm on implementing the project. I am ready to discuss with those who are opposing the project to clarify their doubts,” he said.

According to him, the project would create employment to at least 40,000 people in the district. “I will not allow the exploitation of farmers and the Disneyland project will benefit thousands of farmers and youth as it will create thousands of jobs,” Kumaraswamy said.

The Public Works Department will take up various development works in the district at a cost of Rs. 602 crore and install transformers to 10,000 irrigation pump-sets at a cost of Rs. 212 crore, he said. “In all, the government is releasing Rs. 3,000 crore to Mandya for various development works. On Feb. 27, foundation stones will be laid to various development works,” he added.

    Brain Child or money making idea? Reason why public opinion is not being taken. Stop this nonsense and stop ruining our city! People in other parts of karnataka are begging for some attention/developmental work. Why dont you build your Disneyland in North Karnataka and create 40000 jobs there?Why only Mysore belt for every damn thing?

    Worst CM ever seen, only wants to make money for himself and his family. If Disneyland comes here, it will be more problem for drinking water and farming. Bla bla bla to convience the farmer, let them plan somewhere suitable in Noth Karnataka . Master mind is from that Mudhiya. Only their family should be centre of attraction. Appa, Makkalu, Sosseyaru, Mammakkalu, avare ella agbeku,, avare ella thinbegu. These family should be thrown out of politics. If Karnataka has to clean state.

      Hop you don’t call your Father, Mother as Mudiya’s.
      Would it be too much to criticize someone without going to this cheap level?

      • ankeatas says:

        If my parents were old (Muduka, Muduki ) whats wrong when someone saying it ? I did not say Manninmaga Thatappa right ?
        Let me not deny that, i have no valid reason support or respect to this greedy family.

  5. Rao says:

    Why is this Disney thing in headlines in SOM almost every day. No other news paper is concerned about it.
    I feel KBG has some personal agenda for opposing this.
    Disney project (provided it completes) would be great attraction. It will provide permanent livelihood for thousands of people both directly and in directly.

    With countless stray dogs, donkeys and stray cows wandering in the streets, air polluted because of fossil-fuel driven vehicles, and health hazards because of deplorable public health situation without clean water, who will come to this third world cesspit to see this Disneyland? Rich gowdara samrajya. Why not call it Devegowda fun park?
