Palike plays spoilsport at Vyalikaval

“This is a new but dangerous tradition started here. The playground will be lost to a kind of political show-off,” said a resident of the area living closeby. He said he had grown up playing in this field which is now increasingly under threat.

Many fun games such as giant wheel and toy-train have come up and all have been set up here by digging the ground mercilessly.

A huge marquee too has been established where every evening till late night cultural programmes are organised. Residents have a harrowing time with the loudspeakers in the fair.

This is the second major event in recent times. The residents recall that barely a few months ago a religious function was organised at the ground.

People, who had a tough time during the four-day religious programme, protested the BJP leaders’ move to hold Dasara Fair.

But they were allegedly threatened and forced to remain mute.
