  1. Cleaning drive should be on a regular schedule. Why just for Dasara ?

    That is because, ‘bakaras’ like you simply post compalint here, and do not do anything more, simply sitting and typing this crap.
    Get out , organise a protest group, and do the demo in the MCC building, meet the Mayor and councillors to demand regular cleaning.
    But you do not do it and the MCC knows about you lazy residents, who maon and do nothing. They also know that you in Mysore are used in living in filthy conditions in this third world city .
    There is another useless group of retirees, led by an attention seeker called Barmy Shenoy, a politico in retirement, claiming to be an international oil expert, who arrived to settle in this city in 1980s, who also howls in this paper, but does nothing. His outfit called MGP-we call it Grahachara crowd, meant to be a pressure group , and you could contact him at MGP. But, he will think: ‘what is in it for me”! a self-centred attitude.

    Hello @Anantha Damoor
    You sound like an IT techie, doing the cheap coolie work. Many like you have swamped in Mysore, thanks to Infosys Murthy’s training institute and IT sweat shop-he made a lot of money by putting KIT techie to do cheap software coding work,.
    Hence, education in Karnataka is centred around program coding-cheap IT techie training. Mysoreans these days do not think, as they do not have broad-based education.
    If you are smart, you would have grasped that your Mayor has gone to New Delhi, to invite your newly elected president, the dark tribal woman-Droupadi Murmu, to come and inaugurate the Dasara 2022. There by, Your Mayor, district minister and your MP Simha, can expect more tourists, more contracts like this , so that they can pocket the 40% commission.
    Regular cleaning will not give opportunity to pocket this massive 40 % commission. That simple.
