The derelict sunny side at Madikeri
A project to convert, ‘Sunny Side’ the house belonging to late General K.S.Thimmaiah, presently housing the Regional Transport Office (RTO), was conceived during the term of H.D Kumaraswamy as Chief Minister (C.M) and B.S Yeddyurappa as Deputy Chief Minister. A sum of Rs. one crores was sanctioned for the project, and the RTO was asked to relocate to a new premises on Abby Falls road. The RTO will shift once the works on the new building is completed but nothing has been heard of the amount that was sanctioned way back in 2006. Major Nanjappa had grand plans to convert ‘Sunny Side’ into a world class museum but the lethargic attitude, of the District administration and the peoples representatives, has forced him to resign from the post of convenor of this much delayed project.
