The BJPs’ aggressive awareness campaign on the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) in Karnataka will witness Union Home Minister Amit Shah address a massive rally at Nehru Stadium, Hubballi, on January 18.

This is among the several rallies planned to drum up support for the Act, against which protests are being held around the country. 

Addressing a press meet, Mahesh Tenginakai, general secretary of the state BJP unit said that apart from Shah, Union ministers Pralhad Joshi and Anurag Thakur will also participate in rallies scheduled in Karnataka. While Joshi will address rallies at Kalaburagi and Yadgir on January 11, and Raichur on January 12, Thakur will address rallies at Belagavi and Chikkodi.

Day-long campaign

On Jan 11 and 12, all BJP leaders - from state-level to local units - will take part in day-long awareness campaigns. During the course of the campaign, the BJP has plans to reach 30 lakh houses. For the purpose, they will visit 50 houses in each of the 58,000-odd booths in Karnataka.

BJP will also organise Bharat Mata Poojan, bike and torchlight rallies at taluk levels to debunk the rumours spread against the humanitarian CAA, said N Ravikumar, BJP general secretary.

BJP national vice president Baijayant Panda took part in a CAA awareness rally held in Bengaluru on Wednesday. He said that none of the minorities would be affected by the new legislation and Opposition was misleading the public over the issue.
