Lok Sabha elections: Amit Shah's rally in Sivaganga, Bengaluru South

Bengaluru, Apr 03: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah addressed election rallies in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in support of BJP candidates on Tuesday. The BJP chief was in Sivaganga in support of H Raja and went on a road show with Bengaluru South Constituency candidate Tejasvi Surya signifying the importance attached to retaining its traditional stronghold for decades.

Amit Shah charged Congress nominee Karti Chidambaram contesting from Sivaganga Lok Sabha seat and DMK's Kanimozhi seeking election from here with being tainted by corruption. Addressing a poll rally here, he hit out at National Conference leader Omar Abudullah for his "Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir," line, and asked the people whether they supported the Kashmir leader's remarks.

The party chief alleged the candidates nominated by Congress and DMK - the likes of Karti Chidambaram, Kanimozhi and A Raja (from Nilgiris) - were tainted by graft.

In Bengaluru's road show, Tejaswini Ananth Kumar's attendance gave a boost to the roadshow, as she was sulking after being denied the ticket, leaving her supporters angry and agitated. She has been appointed as the vice president of the state unit to pacify the latter and her supporters.

On the other hand, chaos broke out at PM Narendra Modi's election rally in Gaya in Bihar, with people throwing chairs on each other. The ruckus reportedly broke out due to poor management at the rally. Prime Minister Modi kicked off NDA's campaign for Bihar Lok Sabha from Gaya.
