Mysuru, February 22:- “More than 2,000 people from Mysuru will attend the mega convention of Brahmins at National College Grounds at Basavanagudi in Bengaluru on February 24-25. Akhila Karnataka Brahmana Mahasabha has made transport arrangements for members who wish to attend the convention,” said president of district Brahmana Association D T Prakash at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Thursday.
