Traders from Tamil Nadu yet to erect stalls at Dasara Exhibition

The cauvery water dispute has also repercussions on World famous Dasara festival. Traders from Tamil Nadu used to erect stalls at Dasara Exhibition every year. Whereas this year stall are yet to be installed due to cauvery water issue.

The traders from Tamil Nadu have not yet come forward to erect stalls.
Around 40 traders had confirmed their names to participate in the dasara exhibition to be held for three months. Most of the garments stalls were being erected by the traders from Erode, Tirpur.  

Sources in the exhibition say after looking at the outcome of Cabinet meeting they might take a call, and hoping they will erect shops by next weekend.  Though this year officials have made a serious attempt to open all stalls before inauguration of Dasara, as per the strict instructions from CM Siddaramaiah, due to cauvery water issue this year too rows of empty stalls were found at Dasara Exhibition.  

KEA CEO Shashikumar said that every year around 60 traders from Tamil Nadu used to take part in the dasara expo, whereas this year around 40 have confirmed their participation. We hope by next they will erect the shops.

Anyways, last minute preparations were going in full swing at the premises. The workers were found busy erecting the stalls, which might be occupied by traders from Tamil Nadu in days to come. Hardly around 8 shops have been completed and in a good move few of the government stalls. Minister Tanvir Sait and HC Mahadevappa inaugurated the incompleted exhibition.
