This time the Kannada & Culture Department has decided to take over the house and convert it into a musuem. They have also given the RTO 3 Months time to vacate the premises. It will be interesting to see how far this one goes.
The project has been jinxed since long. Decided in 2005, and though 1 crore was sanctioned for the project, nor was the amount released or did the RTO move out.
In 2010, frustrated with Govt’s attitude, The Convener of the ‘General K.S.Thimmaiah Memorial Project’, Major (Rtd.) Nanjappa resigned after his repeated pleas to release the amount and request the RTO to shift, fell to deaf ears.
