Mysuru: Housing and district minister V Somanna who has pulled up his socks to celebrate Nada Habba Dasara in a foolproof way, has visited Kukkarahalli Lake on September 8.
Somanna who visited the lake on his morning walk, took severe exceptions to the maintenance of the pristine water body and its ecology, said ‘The lake area which is most used by morning strollers lacks proper walking path ad toilet facilities. I have directed the officials to coordinate with University of Mysore the custodians of the lake to get the things done. I will visit the lake once in a fortnight”, added Somanna who was accompanied by the registrar of the varsity Prof K M Mahadevan.
Somanna appealed to the organisations to take part in the plastic free campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Somanna also stopped by to watch birds, as a bird watching programme had been organised at the lake as a part of 81st birth anniversary of writer K P Poornachandra Tejaswi.
Somanna who came across former Chamarajanagar MP R Dhruvanarayan during the walk sought his cooperation for Dasara and promised to send him the invitation.
Mysuru- Kodagu MP Prathap Simha, MLA L Nagendra, BJP leaders H V Rajiv, Srivatsa were present during the visit.
