Modi Hurricane to hit Karnataka from April 29, PM to address 16 rallies in 8 days

The Karnataka assembly elections are coming closer and all political parties involved are gearing up for the big fight with all the manpower and ammunition they have got. Pre-poll predictions have projected a hung assembly in the state and that is expected to make the players invest more energy and efforts in the hopes of gaining a few seats more towards a majority.

The BJP is ready to bring in its ‘Bramhastra’, that is Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to the state from April 29. PM Modi is not only a game changer for elections but his rallies also see massive crowd turn up. Cashing in on his popularity, the BJP is well geared to use this particular weapon to its full potential.

The Prime Minister is to address no less than 16 rallies in 8 days. According to reports, though BJP President Amit Shah has established a strong network of grassroots level workers, PM Modi’s popularity and oratory skills are expected to win BJP the much-needed advantage over the state populace.

The PM will begin his rally spree in Kolar in South Karnataka on April 29, followed by Raichur on the same day. On May 1 he is expected to address rallies in Bellary and Belagavi and on May 3 he will be addressing to the people in Chamarajnagar and Udupi.

The PM will be speaking in Jamakhandi and Bengaluru city on May 5 followed by Karburgi and Hubbali on May 6th. On May 7th he will be speaking in Shivamoga and Tumukuru and on May 8th he will address to the public in Mangalore and Bengaluru city. The two locations for his May 9th rally are yet to be finalised.

According to reports, the PM will travel to Karnataka five times between April 29th to May 9th.

The state elections are scheduled to be held on May 12th and results will be declared on May 15th.

The BJP had announced its first list of 72 names for candidates earlier and it announced its second list of 82 candidates on Monday. Former CM B S Yeddyurappa will be the party’s CM candidate and he will be contesting from Shikaripura constituency.
