Jaipur : Ending a week-long tussle, the JDA on Sunday opened the main entrance to the Raj Mahal Palace heritage hotel following a meeting between Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raj and Rajmata Padmini Devi, a member of the erstwhile royal family of Jaipur which owns the property.

A committee of ministers was formed to look into the matter after a meeting took place between Devi and Raje last night. Following the committee’s recommendation, the orders to open the seal were issued and the gates were reopened. Enforcement officer Kishore Singh opened the gates Sunday morning.

The BJP appears to have stepped in to resolve the tussle after the ‘Rajmata’ took out a rally against the JDA on September 1 that spilled the confrontation between Raje government and the erstwhile royal family out in the open. Senior BJP leader Saudan Singh met Raje and Devi’s daughter Diya Kumari, also a party MLA, two days ago to discuss the issue.-PTI
