Mysuru: With Dasara less than two months away, Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa (BSY) will chair a meeting of Dasara High Power Committee at the auditorium on the third floor of Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru at 12 noon on Aug. 9.
The meeting which would have been held much earlier under normal circumstances, has been delayed because of the political crisis that hit the State last month, which saw the collapse of JD(S)-Congress Coalition Government and new BJP Government headed by B.S. Yediyurappa taking over.
Amidst the allegations that the State Government was neglecting the world famous event, CM Yediyurappa has finally convened the Dasara High Power Committee meeting on Aug. 9, after returning from his three-day visit to Delhi.
DC Abhiram G. Sankar, Mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath, ZP CEO K. Jyothi, City Police Commissioner K.T. Balakrishna, MUDA Commissioner P.S. Kantharaj, CCF T. Heeralal, DCF Alexander, Tourism Department Deputy Director H.P. Janardhan, CESC, Horticulture and other Department officials will take part in this important Dasara meeting, that sets the tone for the preparations for the 10-day mega event starting from Sept. 29.
