Mysuru: The stakeholders in Mysuru have given their consent for the Rs 1200 cr Disneyland project proposed by the government. However, it comes with a clause that the said project should not have an adverse impact on the century-old KRS dam.

Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had said that there are plans of developing iconic Vrindavan Gardens on lines of USA’s Disneyland, with a 125 ft tall statue dedicated to river Cauvery. The government has also proposed a museum complex, two glass towers measuring 360 feet to provide a bird’s eye view of the dam, an indoor stadium, a bandstand and some replicas of historical monuments.

However, the experts have said that the government can go ahead with the project only if the works are taken up scientifically and the KRS dam is not affected.

“We welcome the government’s proposal of Rs 1200 crore Disneyland project. If we keep opposing these big projects, then the government may not sanction any projects to Mysuru or Mandya area. They may think twice before sanctioning any project to these places especially to Mysuru,” said Narayanagowda, President, Hotel Owners Association, Mysuru. He further said that the government has made it clear that the KRS dam will not be affected by the proposed development, hence we welcome government proposed project which will not only promote tourism in both Mysuru and Mandya but also provides hundreds of job opportunities to people.

He further pointed that ropeway project, film city, rock garden project slipped out of Mysuru’s hands due to opposition from people. “If our attitude does not change then we cannot expect projects coming our way in future. We need to appreciate the concern of the government, ” he said adding that the Association will be submitting a memorandum to district minister and chief minister HD Kumaraswamy about their support to Disneyland project.

N Muthukumar, President of Automotive Axles Limited and Chairman of Confederation of Indian Industry, Karnataka too welcomed the Disneyland project.

Meanwhile, SK Prasad, Professor, Civil Engineering Department, SJCE said that scientific construction of the statue will have no impact on the existing dam.

“Along with the soil strength, we need to ascertain the wind pressure, earthquake pressure, water current affect and environmental impact. If all of this is looked into, then there will be no problem. The plus point is that the place doesnot come in earthquake-prone zone. A uniform pressure statue will be advisable here,” he said.
