Mysuru, August 27:- District In-charge Minister V Somanna instructed the officials to compulsorily print the photographs of Mysuru Maharajas – late Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar and late Jayachamaraja Wadiyar and titular king, Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar in the Mysuru Dasara invitations.
He said that he has given the instruction as per the directions of the Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa. He said that it is the government’s responsibility to respect the King. The Nada Habba ‘Mysuru Dasara’ wouldn’t have been possible without the royal heritage.
The district in-charge minister confirmed about the discontent among several legislators including Krishnaraja Constituency MLA SA Ramadass for not being made a minister.
Somanna said that he had been calling Ramadass to invite him for welcoming the Dasara elephants on Monday, but the MLA was unavailable. I will personally meet Ramadass and convince him to take part in the Dasara festivities, he added. (KS, NGB)
