With just a day left for the sitting Mayor B L Bhyrappa to complete his tenure, the state government has passed an order by reserving the posts of Mayor and Deputy Mayor for general category.
On Thursday, the state government passed an order by reserving both Mayor and Deputy Mayor posts for general category which has led to the start of political activities in the city. The Mysuru City Corporation which is under the JD(S)-BJP control has become a beehive of activities.
There is a long list of aspirants who are knocking at the doors of JD(S) and BJP for the plum posts. Since the posts are reserved for the general category, councillors from Vokkaliga and Lingayat communities are lobbying for the key posts.
