Mysuru: As the Mysore palace is getting ready for the upcoming festivities during Dasara, slated to start on October 13, the dirty look caused by the debris of demolished shops on Sunday night, continues to remain unattended.
The officials of the Palace Board turned a blind eye to the issue at the Palace which is being spruced up for the Naada Habba.
Meanwhile, the owners of the shops in the vicinity of the Southern Gate of Palace that were demolished by the Palace Board in a late-night drive on Sunday, staged a protest in front of the DC’s office on Tuesday October 6.
The protesters alleged that a unilateral decision of the Palace Board to demolish the shops had led to huge losses to them.
Honorary President of Palace South Gate Traders’ Association, Thayur Vittal Murthy, speaking on the occasion, said that he had written to CM Siddharamaiah, District Minister V. Sreenivasa Prasad and DC C. Shikha seeking justice, adding that Prasad had assured that he would soon talk to traders and officials to find an amicable solution
