He maintained that a two day break has been taken by Rahul Gandhi as per the requests made by Siddaramaiah in the backdrop of Dasara and Navratri festivities in the state .

” We have made alternate arrangements for Sonia Gandhi in Mysuru . If the weather condition is good in Madikeri she will visit the place , otherwise , she will stay back in Mysuru , ” Shiv akumar said .
