The foundation stone laying ceremony for actor Dr Vishnuvardhan’s memorial in the city will be held in the city today. The many hurdles that the memorial had to face over the last couple of years have been cleared. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was supposed to lay the foundation, but according to sources, he is unlikely to come. In his absence, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan is expected to lay the foundation stone for the memorial. The programme organised by Department of Public Information and Relation, will see host of MPs, MLAs and MLCs gracing the occasion.
The green bush and composts were cleared for the construction of Dr Vishnuvardhan memorial in the five acre land near Haalaalu Village on the Mysuru- HD Kote Road. Deputy Commissioner D Randeep along with a few other officials visited the place to oversee the preparations.
