Bangalore, Apr 23 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will undertake three rounds of election campaign for the May Assembly Elections in Karnataka, Janata Dal(United) National General Secretary Shambhu Srivatsav said today.

Addressing newspersons here, he said after 'breaking' ties in the State with the BJP, the party had decided to tread its own path and launch electioneering on May 1.

Other senior leaders, including Digvijay Singh and Rajiv Ranjan Singh, would assist the state party leaders in the campaign.

To a question, Mr Srivatsav said the party wanted to focus on serious issues like corruption, nexus between land and mine mafia and welfare programmes to tackle poverty during the campaign.

In the first phase, the party had fielded 30 candidates, including State Party Chief B Somashekhar and Madhu Swamy, a member of the dissolved Assembly.
