BJP’s senior leaders to launch campaign from 21 April
Senior BJP leaders including L K Advani, Rajnath Singh, Venkaiah Naidu and Sushma Swaraj will be launching their campaign for the assembly elections in Karnataka from 21 April, where the party will be holding 192 campaigns that includes rallies, road shows and public functions for the state polls.

While party veteran leader Advani will launch the campaign from Ranebennur and Davangere, Sushma Swaraj will be addressing a rally in Bangalore. The BJP president Rajnath Singh will be attending a rally in Chikkodi, while Venkaiah  Naidu is set to launch a rally in the Telugu-speaking belt comprising Raichur, Shindhanur and Gangavathi.

Party sources said that Rajnath Singh will be campaigning for six days, and Swaraj will campaign for approximately four days.

While Karnataka chief Minister Jagadish Shettar will address his campaign in Bidar and Gulbarga, the BJP vice-president D V Sadananda Gowda will be addressing a rally in Mysore.

However, there is no confirmation about Gujarat CM  campaigning in the assembly polls for Karnataka.

While responding to a question claiming that Modi is not interested in campaigning for Karnataka due to the party’s bad reputation in the past five years, state BJP president Pralhad Joshi said that they were wrong allegations.

The BJP is also expected to take strict action against Venkat Gowda for his failure to file the nomination from Melur in spite of the party’s instruction. Since Gowda wished to support former minister SN Krishnaiah Setty, he reportedly took the decision not to file the nomination.

Meanwhile, pointing  to the Wednesday  blast in Bangalore, BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that his party  will surface with a strong anti- terrorism law if it comes to power in 2014. Talking to reporters, Naqvi said that the first thing which the BJP will be intending is to bring a strong anti- terrorism law like Prevention of Terrorism Act, 2002.
