The BJP is set to start four rath yatras from four corners of Karnataka in the run-up to the upcoming assembly polls.

The first yatra will be flagged off on March 1 by the BJP’s national president JP Nadda from Chamarajanagar. On March 2, Union defence minister Rajnath Singh will flag off the second yatra from Nandgad, Belgaum. On March 3, Union home minister Amit Shah will flag off two yatras, one from Bengaluru and another from Bidar.

The party had organised similar rath yatras before the UP assembly election last year, and it helped galvanise the party cadre which helped the BJP win the election. Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan was the party’s election in charge of UP. With Pradhan now in charge of Karnataka election, the party is set to repeat several campaign ideas which were implemented during the UP polls.

Election schedule is likely to be announced in the second fortnight of March and before that senior BJP leaders will hold several public rallies and meetings in the state. Nadda is on a three-day trip to the state from Monday. He will address two public rallies and participate in a bike rally, apart from meetings with different sections of the society.

On Monday, he visited the Sharada Peetham in Sringeri and stayed in the Mutt guest house for the night.

The bike rally on Tuesday will start from BJP national general secretary CT Ravi’s home and cover parts of his assembly constituency Chikkamagaluru.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is due to visit Karnataka on February 27 to inaugurate the new airport in Shivamogga on the birthday of former chief minister BS Yediyurappa.
