The Varuna ire for the BJP continued with BJP president, Amit Shah skipping his campaign in the assembly segment. Sources say that the decision was taken at the last minute as some workers were waiting to vent their ire against Shah for denying a ticket to B S Yeddyurappa's son, B Vijayendra from Varuna.
He was scheduled to take out a roadshow and address party workers in Hadinaru village. Shah however headed straight to Periyapatana. The BJP however claimed that the event was not cancelled. The venue was shifted to T Narasipur as few areas of Varuna segment come under it, party sources claimed.
However Shah had to end his roadshow halfway as there was poor response from the people. The roadshow was planned from APMC yard to inspection bungalow. But, Shah got down at Basaveshwara Circle and headed towards the helipad to reach T Narasipur.
