Modi, Rahul to up poll ante in B'luru this month

Bengaluru, dhns: The BJP and the Congress will intensify the poll heat, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi arriving in Bengaluru later this month.

Modi is slated to participate in the valedictory of the BJP's Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivartana Yatra at Palace Grounds on January 28. Rahul is scheduled to address a rally at Palace Grounds or the Bengaluru International Exhibition Centre, off Tumakuru Road, the very next day on January 29. The last time Modi addressed party workers was during a brief pitstop at the HAL airport in October, 2017.

Initially, Rahul was to visit state from January 21-23. This has now been pushed to January 27-29 after the party realised that it will be a disadvantage if his visit precedes Modi's.

Sources in the Congress said Rahul will be addressing a ST convention at Hosapete in Ballari on January 27, followed by an interaction with farmers at Vidurashwatha in Chikkaballapur and students in Mysuru on January 28, before arriving in Bengaluru on January 29.
