Lok Sabha member H. Vishwanath has appealed the Government to set up Dasara and Tourism Authorities in the city for further popularising Dasara and promoting tourism in Mysore and Kodagu districts.

In a letter to CM Siddharamaiah, the MP has stressed on the need for the establishment of the Authorities and also urged for expanding the Mandakalli airport and establish a mini airport in Kodagu.

Maintaining that Mysore City needed an exclusive water supply board, Vishwanath urged the Government to declare Mysore as a heritage city and take measures for protecting heritage structures and monuments.

Stressing the need for curbing the real estate mafia, Vishwanath urged the Government to reclaim benami lands purchased by the mafia around the city and distribute sites to the citizens who have been waiting for years for allotment of MUDA sites.

He also sought establishment of more Police Stations and setting up of bomb disposal squad in the city as part of enhancing security.
