Mysuru: In a departure from the set tradition, the district administration has decided to take the onus of decorating the idol of Goddess Chamundeshwari to be taken out in procession during jamboo savari in October 8.
The idol is taken in procession in Golden Howdah mounted on the elephant.
Housing and district minister V Somanna told media persons on September 24, “A decision to this effect was taken as it was heard there will be a lot of confusions over decorating the idol of the Goddess every year”.
The district administration has been spending crores of rupees on Dasara and the efforts should not go waste due to any issues.
Hence, the decision was taken after holding talks with people who matter, said Somanna and MP Prathap Simha.
