    Karnataka: After Amit Shah, Rahul Gandhi to hold roadshow in Shimoga today

    Rahul Gandhi will go to Holalkere in Chitradurga district on Wednesday. Holalkere is a Lingayat stronghold. The Congress president will then go to Tumkur, where he is expected to meet the 111-year-old seer of Siddaganga Mutt Shivakumara Swamy, a revered Lingayat pontiff.

    The Congress has now taken the battle directly to Yeddyurappa's door by bringing party supremo to Shimoga. After landing at Hubli airport, Gandhi took a helicopter ride to Shimoga this morning.

    During his visit, Rahul Gandhi will be addressing a public rally at Government High School Ground in Davangere at 5.30 pm and later attend a public contact programme in Shimoga.

    He will participate in a roadshow in the central Karnataka town before entering the neighbouring district of Davanagere. He is scheduled to address public meetings at Honnali, Harihara and Davanagere before evening.

    The Congress president would also go to Bangalore this week and hold a major rally.
