CM to start state tour from Basavakalyana on Dec 13

 Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has drawn up a plan to visit about 100 Assembly constituencies during his state tour scheduled from December 13, organised as part of preparations for the coming Assembly election.

Though the tour is a government-sponsored programme aimed at reviewing the budgetary announcements, the chief minister will be using it to drum up support for the ruling Congress by projecting 'achievements' of his governments in the past four and a half years. Siddaramaiah is scheduled to launch his tour from Basavakalyana in Bidar district.

He will be addressing an average of three public meetings a day during the tour – tentatively named as "Sadhaneya Sambrama." Majority of the constituencies that he has planned to visit is represented by the Congress MLAs. The Chief Minister's Office has already directed deputy commissioners of all the districts to make preparations for his visit.

Interestingly, none of the state Congress leaders is accompanying the Siddaramaiah during the tour. KPCC president G Parameshwara has already said he will not take part in Siddaramaiah's tour. The chief minister's tour programme will be finalised at a meeting convened by AICC general secretary incharge of Karnataka K C Venugopal on December 5 in Bengaluru.

The party sources said Venugopal and Parameshwara are likely to tour the state separately to review the party's door-to-door campaign "Mane Manege Congress," launched recently.
