BENGALURU: It is not only residents whose houses have been marked for demolition who have lost sleep in the past few days. Many people who have planned their weddings have also been distressed.

Getting a wedding hall is tough in the city and they have to booked well in advance by paying a hefty advance. When television channels started beaming images of demolition work happenning at two wedding halls in Rajarajeshwari Nagar on Friday morning, Yeshwanth, whose wedding was to be held on Saturday and Sunday, was all jittery. The news that the halls were being demolished had struck alarm bells in the family.

He rushed to Padmavathi Kalyana Mantapa and was relieved as no portion of the hall was being demolished. “The guests for my wedding will not face any inconvenience,” said Yeshwant, whose family had booked the hall five months ago.

The managements of Padmavathi Kalyana Mantapa and Meenakshi Kalyana Mantapa, which are adjacent to each other, were clearing portions that were marked for demolition.

At Meenakshi Kalyana Mantapa, common toilets and a portion of the kitchen was razed. An employee told Express that the dining area and kitchen were not affected. “Only the extended portion of the kitchen is damaged. The weddings on Saturday and Sunday will not be affected,” he said.
