Mysore: The scion of the royal family and former MP Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar has taken exception to the demolition of the fence of Lokaranjan Mahal Palace by the Mysore City Corporation (MCC).

Mr. Wadiyar took objection to the MCC’s demolition drive, and described it as trespassing into private property.

He said the MCC has without the authority of the law demolished the fencing on the western and the northern side of the Lokaranjan Mahal Palace without serving notice to the owner. Mr. Wadiyar said it was shocking as to why such arbitrary action was being initiated and urged the MCC Commissioner to stop the demolition.
