March 4, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: Co-operation and District in-Charge Minister S.T. Somashekar has written to Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa and Speaker of the State Legislative Assembly, Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri seeking steps to christen Mysuru Airport in Mandakalli on Nanjangud Road, as Sri Jayachamaraja Wadiyar Airport, the last ruler of Mysuru Kingdom, and to install his portrait inside the Assembly in Bengaluru.

He said the contribution of Wadiyars for overall development of Mysuru City was immense. They strove hard to make Mysuru as a role model State in the country. Jayachamaraja Wadiyar had also done many things for the erstwhile Mysore State and it was responsibility of the Government to honour his services by naming Mysuru Airport after him as well as to install his portrait inside the Assembly. It was happy to note that the State Government has responded positively to put the portraits of 10th Chamaraja Wadiyar and Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar in the State Assembly.

Meanwhile, Pramoda Devi Wadiyar, wife of Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, has complimented the Minister for taking initiation in impressing upon the Government for renaming Mysuru Airport after Jayachamaraja Wadiyar and to get his portrait installed in Assembly. “It is a matter of pride that the Minister is taking personal interest in this regard,” she added.
