Naming Mysuru-B’luru Expressway: Yaduveer to go by Govt’s call

January 11, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: Even as there is a raging debate over naming Mysuru-Bengaluru Expressway after erstwhile Maharaja of Mysore Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar or River Kaveri (Cauvery), Mysore Royal Family member Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar today said that he will abide by whatever decision the Government takes in this regard.

It may be mentioned that, ahead of the opening of the Expressway that is due in February end, Mysuru- Kodagu MP Pratap Simha has suggested the name of River Kaveri as very apt while former CM S.M. Krishna and incumbent Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambarish have mooted the name of Nalwadi as most suitable for the newly developed Highway.

Reacting to media queries today, Yaduveer said, “Whichever name the Government decides, I have my full consent. All those will be decided at the Government level.”

The works should be completed at the earliest and the travellers should be benefitted, said Yaduveer.

On a query regarding Devikere works at Chamundi Hill that have been stopped (by an advocate representing the royal family), Yaduveer told the media persons to speak to his mother (Pramoda Devi) regarding the issue.

    Hello Yaduveer, the pretend Wadiyar!
    I reckon you support the name of !Tipu Sultan Highway’ if Narendra Modi and his bunch think that it will bring in more Muslim votes to BJP in the next election?

    Yaduveer thinks that he is still living in 1920s, when Wadiyars mattered in Mysore, although, it was the British who controlled what these Wadiyars did!!
    Where is his adopted mother, Pramoda Devi? She would want this express way to be named after her husband Srikanta Dutta Wadiyar, who spent most of his time in Bangalore, indulging in whatever fancied him!
