Mysore, Oct 25: After a series of overnight stays and village visits in Mysore district and other parts of Karnataka, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy will stay overnight at Bevukallu Koppal village in neighbouring Mandya district tonight.

The Mandya district administration had spruced up the village and other parts of the district for the VIP's visit. As soon as the Chief Minister's visit was announced, the district administration had repaired two borewells of the total three in the village and installed new street lights.

This would be the Chief Minister's first night halt in Mandya district. Though the administration had decided to arrange his stay at a Government school, Mr Kumaraswamy intended to stay in the house of Basave Gowda, a Janata Dal (Secular) activist.

According to official sources, the Chief Minister would arrive in Mandya tonight and would lend an ear to the grievances of locals on his way to Bevukallu Koppal village. Tomorrow morning, he would take up a padayatra in the village to get first hand knowledge about the problems being faced by the villagers. Later, he would lay the foundation stone for development works worth Rs 150 crore in the district.

Bevukallu Koppal is a hamlet along the Mandya-Melkote road with a population of nearly 500. This village neither had drinking water nor irrigation facilities and depended only on Rain God for water.

The village was connected by just one bus daily in the morning and evening. For any medical emergency, the villagers have to go to Mandya town. The villagers were hoping to get some basic facilities owing to the Chief Minister's stay in the village.
