    BJP at the center thinking of naming the express Highway, between Mysore and Bangalore, MN ay be some RSS MEN LIKE saverker, shamprasad Mukherjee, vajapayee….

  2. Charles says:

    I suggest that this expressway be called as ” Bengaluru Mysore expressway” as it is neutral best and right name .
    Maybe a few egos will be hurt but unnecessary arguments and worthless press meets can be avoided.
    A person who has come from sakleshpur is not indebted to the wadiyars of Mysore and therefore cannot come out magnanimously in favour of wadiyar in the way mysoreans come out from bottom of their hearts.
    Fir him it’s plain provocative politics and personal ego.

  3. Howdy, Modi! says:

    Name anything, this expressway will go the same way as the smaller Mysore-Nanjangud expressway, although 10-lanes and all singing and dancing praise, it will get congested within a year, potholes appearing thereafter and the express way material coming off.
    Many accidents and many lives lost in the meanwhile.

    Naming of road is Colonial. This NH 275is built from taxpapers and future toll payers money
    Absurd to name be politician or others. Krishnaraj wodeyer built KRS from his money So apt to name the resorvoir. Petty politicians have no othet business ecxept to promote their party or leaders
