It may be recalled that retired Senior Vice-President of ITDC N.K.A. Ballal had openly welcomed the invitation extended by S.R. Mahesh requesting the Titular Head of Royal Family to promote Dasara tourism after becoming its Brand Ambassador. Ballal had written an article titled “Wadiyar as Dasara Brand Ambassador — Royalty sells… Our Tourism Minister takes baby steps”  in SOM dated Sept.23, defending that ‘Royalty indeed sells…’

He had suggested the Govt. to allow Yaduveer to take part in the historic Jumboo Savari as its Brand Ambassador. “The Government should make the Brand Ambassador to sit in his full royal regalia in a silver chariot, after the elephant carrying the Golden Howdah, as such measures would attract the tourists in large scale,” Ballal opined.
