PM Modi will also hold three public rallies: at 10 a.m. in Humnabad, at 12 p.m. in Vijayapura, and at 3 p.m. in Kudachi.
With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mega roadshow in Bengaluru and back-to-back three public rallies beginning today, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s campaign for the battle of Karnataka will enter an aggressive mode. PM Modi will address 19 public rallies in various districts and participate in four roadshows until May 7 as part of his campaign for the May 10 elections. The BJP, Congress (with CPI support), and JD(S) are fighting on their own in the hope of forming a government in the state.
The Prime Minister will enter the campaign in the final stages, holding a slew of roadshows and rallies in an effort to keep the BJP in power in its “gateway to the South.” PM Modi will also hold three public rallies: at 10 a.m. in Humnabad, at 12 p.m. in Vijayapura, and at 3 p.m. in Kudachi. His roadshow is scheduled for today around 4.30 p.m.
“This roadshow will be of a number of kilometres in length in which three assembly constituencies of Bangalore North will be covered in nearly 45 minutes,” sources had told earlier ANI.
“On April 30, PM Modi will address public meetings organized in Kolar, Channapatna and Mysore districts. After this, on May 2, PM Narendra Modi will campaign in Chitradurga, Vijayanagar, Sindhanur and Kalaburagi. On May 3, he will campaign for BJP candidates in Moodbidire, Karwar and Kittur,” they added.
Following in the footsteps of Gujarat’s Ahmedabad, the party has decided to organise a mega roadshow of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly in order to ensure the party’s candidates’ victories. In addition to these roadshows, the BJP is planning two or three more in the state.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said the Congress and its leaders have lost their minds after President Mallikarjun Kharge made a’venomous snake’ remark about Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“PM Modi is welcomed across the world with a lot of respect, he said the Congress cannot instigate people with such statements, because the support for the Prime Minister will increase, as much as they abuse him,” Shah said.
“One hand, there is the Congress under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, and on the other, is the BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. This (Karnataka Assembly) election is an opportunity for you to decide if you want a double engine sarkar led by PM Modi, which will take Karnataka forward, or the Congress’s reverse gear sarkar, which will take Karnataka backwards,” he added.
During the Gujarat Assembly elections last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had the largest-ever roadshow in Ahmedabad, covering nearly 50 kilometres across 19 assembly constituencies. The challenge for the Bharatiya Janata Party in Karnataka is to retain power, for which party president JP Nadda and Home Minister Amit Shah have already begun election campaigns.
Notably, Karnataka is the only southern state ruled by the BJP. The BJP is seeking a second term in the state and has expressed confidence in regaining full power. The 224-seat assembly will go to the polls on May 10, and the votes will be counted on May 13.
