The BJP is locked in a tough fight with the ruling Congress in Karnataka and is banking on Modi's charisma to help it come back to power in the state after five years.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with Karnataka BJP leaders, including the party’s candidates for the May 12 assembly polls, elected members and office-bearers, through his mobile application tomorrow. A BJP statement said he would also speak to party workers and provide them “guidance” as they campaign for the polls to the 224-member assembly.
Modi has often used modern technology to speak to BJP leaders and workers to push his government’s and party’s various campaigns, and had on Sunday interacted with its MPs and MLAs through his app over a variety of issues, including the ongoing ‘gram swaraj’ drive, which had started on April 14 and would continue till May 5.
