Mysore/Mysuru: Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar, BJP candidate for Lok Sabha elections from Mysuru-Kodagu Constituency, appealed voters to support him in the elections on Apr. 26 to strengthen the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi towards building a stronger India.

He was addressing the gathering during a public meeting organised on 9th Cross, Ramanuja Road in city on Thursday.

Yaduveer said: “I am the nominee of BJP and JD(S) alliance and in the fray with the blessings of PM Modi, who has made several contributions to the country. Prior to Modi’s tenure in office in 2014, the country’s economy was in jeopardy, but now in the year 2024 it has scaled up to become fifth largest economy. This achievement was possible due to the pro-development style of functioning of Modi. Metro rail connectivity that was earlier provided in seven cities has now been extended to 22 cities.”

While 9,000 km long National Highways were built in 65 years, it has now touched 1.5 lakh km distance now, he added.

Road show

At Ashokapuram,  Yaduveer was welcomed with a shower of flower petals, the residents of Sunnadakeri washed his feet as a mark of devotion towards the erstwhile royal family.

Yaduveer, who offered his floral tributes to the statue of Architect of the Constitution Dr. B.R. Ambedkar at the park named after Ambedkar in Ashokapuram, later went around the locality in an open vehicle. However, upon noticing the women waiting to offer him a traditional welcome with arati, he chose to alight and walk through every streets of the locality on a padayatra.
