Food Zone to come up atop Chamundi Hill

January 28, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: Setting in motion a slew of development works across Chamundeshwari Assembly segment, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha and Chamundeshwari MLA G.T. Devegowda (GTD) this morning performed guddali puja for a number of works at various places coming under the Constituency.

Pratap Simha and GTD launched the works for the Rs. 3.81 crore Food Zone atop Chamundi Hill. Though the Food Zone  project was officially inaugurated by the then Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa in Sept. 2019, the project ran into hurdles due to COVID crisis and objections by various groups. But today, the  ambitious project was kickstarted with the MP and the MLA performing guddali puja.

The duo also performed ‘guddali puja’ for concretisation of ST Colony Road and construction of drainage along the road atop Chamundi Hill taken up at  a cost of Rs.80 lakh; various development works at Tavarekatte at the foothill at a cost of Rs.40 lakh and construction of a 4.3 km long road at Gorur village under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana  at a cost of Rs.2.59 crore. The MP and the MLA were also scheduled to launch a host of other developmental works at different villages during the day.

    It seems people with vested interest are hell bent on destroying Chamundi Hill. We can only hope that Goddess Chamundeshwari herself saves her abode from these mindless development. What is the need for Food Zone? Will something extra-ordinary food dishes going be served here that is not available anywhere else in Mysore city? Have the devotees asked for a Food Zone? Chamundi Hill is being converted in to a mini exhibition ground.

    The funds spent for destroying the ambience of Chamundi Hill can be better spent in the streets of Mysore to upgrade roads, foot paths and street lighting.

    Darodekora MP + MLA 😀 these guys are hell bent on destroying such a beautiful hill. Goddess Chamundeshwari for sure punish these crooks when the right time comes.

  4. Kumar says:

    Very pathetic and poor in these politicians involved projects. Whatever they have built look like Sulabh Shouchalyas or Urinal cubicles for tourists to pass urine and make use of it as latrines. Are there people who are protesting against this in Mysore? People of Mysore please wake up and voice yr concerns.

    Chamundi hills is becoming commercial place than worshipping place. They say Land slides happen n hv slogans saying save green, save forest, it’s only fr common people not fr these positions or other ppl. In the name of civilization, the peaceful n mother nature’s place is being destroyed day by day n Bcz of all these Mysore is rapidly loosing it’s beauty, the Pride n Taj of the localities.

    Please spend the money to construct the road at Mahadevapura and other parts of Mysore city. The parthenium plants grown every where and the scattered litters at road sides reflect poor administrative mindset.

    Chamundi mountain dose will be new specialty. Also chamundi biriyani.
    How about Chamundi Beer Bar?

  10. Gusto says:

    @Shanky all the above you have suggested, followed by a week in a police lock up cell for you is the blessing from the Goddess! You will have earned it! By the way, the exit was stitched by a surgeon and hence no wind-breaking by you!

  11. Captain Jack Sparrow says:

    Alternatively, for @Shanky, after the feast he has suggested for himself above, the Goddess, the slayer of Mahishasura, could dangle him upside down midway from the edge of the Chamundi Hill top, to show Her kindness!!

  12. boregowda says:

    @Gusto and @Captain… You missed the essence of cynic comments from @shanky

  13. Gusto says:

    You never understood the amusing elements in both @Gustoand @Captain posts, as this @Shanky refers to fart in his comment on gas pipeline and food that can generate flatulence in his comment on Chamundi Hill food scheme.
    Gowdare, you have difficulties in comprehending the satire and gentle comedy in those posts!!
    May be you should do better next time.

    Hello Mysoreans
    Your CM Bommai could make this food scheme work well, if he arranges to distribute frees packet of Bisi Bele Baat to all visitors to the Chamundi Hill, on the day his and your PM Modi dishes out his pep talk i n his ,’ Mann Kii Baat ‘ programme!
