Karnataka Assembly polls: Modi to address a BJP rally in Bengaluru today


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rally in Bengaluru on Sunday which will conclude the party's 90-day Nava Nirman Parivarthan yatra across poll-bound Karnataka. The yatra was led by its state unit president and former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa and party's other state leaders.

 Modi to address a BJP rally in Bengaluru today

Modi was scheduled to address the rally on January 28, 2018, that began in Bengaluru on November 1, 2017, however, it was put off to February 4, owing to his pre-occupation with other engagements.

The Bengaluru bandh was planned for February 4 when Modi is in the city. However, it has been cancelled by the Karnataka High Court. The court, which cited a Supreme Court verdict on strikes, also directed the Siddaramaiah government to ensure that the daily lives of people, and other industrial and commerce activities, are not affected due to the shutdown.

The yatra, is being held with a view to bring the BJP back to power in the state on the plank of transforming Karnataka through development.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who faces state elections a few months later, was widely seen to have backed the protests over sharing the river water. He has been using the row with Goa and Maharashtra, both ruled by the BJP, to corner the BJP's presumptive chief minister BS Yeddyurappa.
