Subsequently, holding of any political meetings or any other functions in the premises of Guest Houses has been banned till the completion of election process. Also, unauthorised parking of vehicles and letting out of rooms in Guest Houses to any unauthorised person/s for resting/ staying has been strictly prohibited, according to a press release from  the DC.

The main gates of the Guest Houses have been locked and the office boards of MP, MLA and MLC at the Guest Houses have been covered with clothes and masked with stickers.

In Mysuru city, there are five Government Guest Houses — Chamundi Guest House on JLB Road, Jaladarshini Guest House on Hunsur Road, Government Guest House in Nazarbad, State PWD Guest  House in Nazarbad and Central PWD Guest House in DFRL premises on Bannur Road.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “District Electoral Officer takes control of Government Guest Houses”

  1. Never Presto Questo says:

    A poster [email protected] categorises voters, but voters like him vote many times getting cash from different candidates. He thinks this is Tech India, with electronic voting system which he prides himself, but the same IT criminals who hack accounts of Western bank customers, operating in the outsourced customer services in India, and sell the account details are the same gangs, are used for votes manipluation in datbases after voting has ended.
    Hence, what is the purpose of this nonsense about guest houses? Plebty of private bangalows are available for use by the corrupt politicians, India has in plenty.
