Mysore, July 29 (KCU)- With a view to celebrate this year's Dasara in a grand manner, Mayor Sandesh Swamy has announced that a special Dasara grant of Rs. 20 crore will be sought from the Chief Minister.

Addressing a press meet here today at his office, Sandesh Swamy however regretted that the special Dasara grant was usually released at the last moment, thus hampering the preparations for the festival. He sought an early release of funds for better planning and execution.

New concepts

Highlighting the new concepts on the anvil for Dasara, Sandesh Swamy said, "It is proposed to commission about 12 mobile toilets for the benefit of tourists and to maintain hygiene. Tenders have been invited for the supply of battery-operated bicycles for tourists to commute freely. Introduction of Sarots will be a boost to the heritage."
