Bangalore, April 28: On a regular Sunday in Bangalore, the residents of the city could be seen in malls and pubs enjoying their holiday. But, this Sunday (April 28) seems to be different. Most of the Bangaloreans, especially Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's fans could be seen heading to the sprawling National College Grounds, Basavanagudi in Bangalore.

Modi will address a huge crowd in the National College Grounds at 6pm in the evening. The venue can accommodate as much as 1.2 lakh people at one time.

Modi is visiting Bangalore to campaign for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), few days ahead of Karnataka Assembly Elections 2013. Elections in the state are slated on May 5.

The area surrounding the venue witnessed huge traffic since morning. Many Modi fans reached the venue, several hours before Gujarat Chief Minister's address.

"I am a big fan of Narendra Modi. I know the venue would be crowded, so I have decided to reach the place early in order to grab hold of a seat and watch my favourite leader speaking ahead of elections in Karnataka," said Jitendra Puri, a software professional.

BJP party workers expressed happiness as Modi is campaigning for the party in Karnataka.

As potential Prime Ministerial candidate, Modi is known to win hearts of voters.

"Modi is a winner. He is synonyms with development. His visit to state and campaigning for BJP holds great meaning for us. We are sure to get good response from voters this assembly elections," said a BJP party-worker, busy arranging last minute details at the venue of Modi's campaign.

Modi will be addressing just one rally this time, unlike the last state elections in 2008, when the BJP leader was a star campaigner of the party.

"Narendra Modi has become the darling of the masses in the entire country. Even the media is clamouring for Narendra Modi," BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu said.
