Modi will address the crowd at the sprawling National College grounds in Bangalore on Sunday evening.
Elections in the state is slated on May 5. The prospects for ruling BJP is not very good, as anti-incumbency factor is quite palpable in the state. In such a scenario, Modi's visit to the state holds great importance for BJP.
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.
When quizzed by journalists why the party is not fully utilising the services of Modi for campaigning, BJP President Prahlad Joshi said he would discuss with him regarding "the remaining dates" (of his campaigning in Karnataka).
But a party source said barring the rally slated to be held on the sprawling National College grounds in Bangalore on Sunday, Modi is unlikely to spend more time in Karnataka for campaigning.
