Assembly polls: Amit Shah to begin 79-day ‘Karnataka Parivartan Yatra’ today

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president, Amit Shah will begin party’s 79-day ‘Karnataka Parivartan Yatra’ in Bengaluru on Thursday. The aim of this yatra is to return to power in the southern state.

Over one lakh party workers riding motorbikes may attend a rally to be addressed by Shah as per a BJP statement.

The event will continue for months. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally on January 28, on the conclusion of the yatra. It is to be led by the party’s chief ministerial candidate, BS Yeddyurappa.

Notably, party workers from state’s 28,000 polling booths are likely to join Shah’s rally. Besides, noted party leaders, including union ministers and chief ministers, will attend the yatra. It will pass through the state’s 224 assembly seats, a statement suggests.

Currently, the grand-old-party, Congress is in power in the state. BJP is making all efforts to throw out the current government in the Assembly polls scheduled to be held early next year.
