Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded his two-day visit to Karnataka with a breakfast hosted by the erstwhile Mysuru royal family at the Amba Vilas Palace in Mysuru Tuesday.

Modi met with erstwhile royals Wadiyars for breakfast after participating in the Yoga Day celebrations held on the premises of the Palace.

After the breakfast meeting with Modi, Pramoda Devi Wadiyar of the erstwhile royal family said: “I had written a letter to the prime minister earlier, inviting him for breakfast at our house. It may be a palace for others, for us it’s our house. He has accepted our invitation and we are happy.”
