The foundation stone laying ceremony for the memorial of Dr. Vishnuvardhan that was scheduled for today has been cancelled. The event will be held later after a new date is fixed.
The death of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa is the reason for the postponement. Karnataka Chief Minister is going to Chennai to attend the funeral of Jayalalithaa and therefore cannot be in the event in Mysuru.
Karnataka has also announced one day mourning in the state for Jayalalithaa's death and therefore there will be no official government function today
