Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has said that, “We have decided to release Rs 6 crore to celebrate Dasara festival at Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, and Sriragapatna.”
Due to the current situation of Covid-19, Karnataka government has planned to keep Dasara festivities in Mysuru and adjoining districts low-key.
After chairing a meeting with the high-level committee in charge of organising the 10-day-long cultural and religious festival, Bommai announced that all rituals including the inauguration of the festivities atop Chamundi Hills, Jumbo Savari (elephant procession), and the illumination of the city will take place this year.
