Procession marks 'Rajatha Sambhrama'

A colourful procession with many folk troupes and Navodaya SHG members, wearing uniform sarees from different parts of Karnataka, added colour to a procession taken out as a part of ‘Rajatha Sambhrama’, the silver jubilee programme of M N Rajendrakumar’s tenure as the president of SCDCC Bank here on Saturday.

Chende teams, Dollu Kunitha, colourful dolls, Yakshagana dolls, models of buffalo and Kattappa, men dressed as huge gorilla, body guards, Pooja Kunitha, Nandi Kamba, Pattada Kunitha, a model of a Kambala and jockey and
others were part of the procession.

Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers, Statistics and Programme Implementation D V Sadananda Gowda flagged off the procession on SDCC Bank premises at Kodailbail.

The colourful procession passed through Hampankatta, Clock Tower and A B Shetty Circle before culminating at Nehru Maidan.

As many as 25 LED screens were installed at the venue for the audience to get a better view of the stage programme. More than 100 CCTV cameras were installed.

Vehicles which ferried the Navodaya SHG members from different parts of the state were parked beside the road at Pandeshwara, other parts of the city and also at Town Hall, University College, St Aloysius College and Emmekere grounds.

The road users had a tough time traveling on the main road due to traffic jams and slow movement of vehicles following the procession.

All the buses going to State Bank area from different locations were diverted at Clock Tower to alight the passengers without proceeding to State Bank area at 10 am itself.

The traffic was affected till the procession reached Nehru Maidan and later in the afternoon after the programme concluded.
