Maharaja Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar – the 27th Maharaja of Kingdom of Mysuru has backed Narendra Modi-ji ahead of parliamentary elections in 2019.
Speaking to reporters, Yaduveer said:
“Modi-ji has done wonderful work for the country in the past four years. The results are evident. Mere, 5 years is not enough for development, he needs to be given an extended run”, he said speaking to reporters.
Yaduveer was speaking on the occasion of BJP’s Sampark for Samarthan programme (Contact for Support). Ramdas, MLA from Narasimha raja constituency, Mysuru had met Yaduveer and briefed him about the developmental works undertaken by the NDA government headed by Modi-ji.

When queried by a reporter on the government’s performance at the centre, Yaduveer said “We should always support good work and encourage it” – in an obvious support to the BJP government.
The 27th King of Mysuru – an English and Economics graduate from Boston is known to keep a low profile and his public appearances are very limited.
Yaduveer is the nephew of late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wodeyar, who passed away in 2013. Yaduveer was adopted as the titular head of the Mysuru Royal family by Pramoda Devi – as the couple had no issues.
