Today Karnaaka will witness BJP's election campaign bombardment as Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address four public rallies in poll bound-Karnataka on Saturday while BJP President Amit Shah and Rajnath singh are also scheduled to hold various gatherings. "Since the stakes are higher, we don't even want Amit Shah to find out the location where our MLAs will be hiding so we have booked several resorts and MLAs will be kept in any one of those".
Talking about the new State Congress president, he said, "The contest in Madhya Pradesh is between corporate supporters and farmers, and so the Congress will not be able to defeat the BJP". "There is no doubt that we'll win the state again, but the party's central leadership expects the organisation and workers to work for a massive victory margin which will cause heart attack to our opponents", Shah told party workers in Bhopal.
Shah will also take part in a meeting with the Chief Ministers of the north eastern states ruled by non-Congress parties.
Giving details of Amit Shah's tour at a hurriedly called press conference at Pathrakarthara Bhavan in city this morning, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha said that Shah's chopper will land directly at Varuna at 11 am and during the campaign, he will be accompanied by Vijayendra.

Shah said he was amused to hear the "tall claims" of Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Nath about the Opposition party's prospects in Madhya Pradesh. Shah later went back to Bangalore.
He praised Shivraj Singh Chouhan for his pro-poor policies and claimed that BJP will win all the 29 seats in the State in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "Rahul Gandhi should apologise to the Hindu community for this", he said. "There is no anti-incumbency against the BJP government here, as anti-incumbency is only synonymous with the Congress".
"The Congress and its president tirelessly talked about the "Hindu terror" in the 2014 elections and defamed Hindu culture and dishonoured India".
