Amit Shah in poll-bound Karnataka

Amit Shah will also interact with traders and businessmen, and, as he often does in his trips, visit local temples

Bengaluru: BJP president Amit Shah is on a three-day visit to Karnataka during which he will hold meetings with members of various communities, including farmers, backward castes and scheduled castes, a party statement said today.

Shah will also interact with traders and businessmen, and, as he often does in his trips, visit local temples.

Shah will visit the family of a farmer today, who had committed suicide, in Mangalgi village in Bidar, the statement said.

The BJP has accused the Congress government in the state of pursuing anti-farmer policies, and its leaders, including chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa, have assured farmers a remunerative price for their crops and other steps to improve their condition if the party is elected to power.

Shah was in poll-bound Karnataka for three days only last week and his frequent tours to the State coupled with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s public meetings there underscore the BJP s all-out efforts to oust the Congress from the last big state it is in power.

The statement said Shah will also meet sugarcane farmers tomorrow in Humnabad.

He will meet members of Koli community and those from other backward castes and scheduled castes.

Shah will also address several party meetings.

The southern State is likely to go to polls in April-May.
