Mysuru, December 9:- Even after two months of the commencement of the Mysuru Dasara Exhibition, no cultural activities have been organised at the auditorium of the Dasara Exhibition. Artistes have not been given an opportunity to perform at the exhibition. The state government which spends a huge amount of money on cultural activities at Yuva Dasara and Dasara activities has totally sidelined the exhibition.
Every year, cultural activities begin 10 days after the commencement of the exhibition. But this year, there has been not even a single cultural event in two months. Only one month remains for the conclusion of the exhibition which ends on January 7.
Mysuru has enough talented artistes. People who visit the exhibition visit all the shops and activities at the exhibition and feel like relaxing watching cultural activities with some snacks. All these years, cultural activities were organised by inviting artistes from far-off places. But this year, artistes of Mysuru District have not been given an opportunity. Thousands of people visit the exhibition during weekends.
Social worker G P Harish has requested District In-charge Minister G T Devegowda and the district administration to look into the issue. (MR/GK)
