Meanwhile, in Mysuru the Kannada organisations staged a protest against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Sriramulu for supporting the demand for a separate statehood for North Karnataka and demanded that he should be externed from Mysuru District.

The protesters, who assembled at Gun House in Fort Mohalla, raised slogans against the MLA.

In a related note, the seers from different mutts gathered in Belagavi’s Suvarna Soudha to press for the development of the state attended by BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa.

The supporters who have been demanding for a separate state attempted to barge into the meeting and tried to unfurl the flag of a separate state. They had a heated argument with seers and were taken into custody by the police.

With regard to the new Kannada movie titled ‘Odeyar’ starring actor Darshan, Pramodi Devi Wadiyar said that she has no objection to the title ‘Odeyar,’ but asserted that the movie should not have any reference to the Mysuru royal family.

She said the name ‘Wodeyar’ has came from our ancestors and hence, don’t wish the name to be highlighted in a movie.
