Many people come and occupy these steps since early morning to watch the  Dasara procession.

MCC Commissioner G. Lakshmikantha Reddy, along with Mayor Shivakumar, who inspected the asphalting, said that work orders were issued earlier but they could not be taken up due to continuous rains.

Mayor said that Krishnaraja MLA has given Rs. 150 crore and Chamaraja MLA has provided  Rs. 250 crore for the works and work order for Rs. 100 crore for each Constituency has been given.
