The Prime Minister is slated to address another 12 rallies over the next few days before Karnataka goes to poll on May 12.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will undertake his third round of campaigning in poll-bound Karnataka, tomorrow. The BJP has also lined up a galaxy of leaders, including Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, to address public meetings in the next few days, BJP sources said. Modi had launched his campaign blitzkrieg yesterday with a blistering attack on Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party. The Prime Minister’s next round of campaigning would be at Tumakuru on May 5. Modi resumed his campaign in the state after a long break yesterday–the last rally he addressed was in February–as he sought to give a big push to BJP’s efforts to return to power in the state for a second time unseating the Congress.
