Pavan Kalyan Jumps on to BJP Bandwagon

With just two weeks remaining for the April 17 Lok Sabha elections in the state, the BJP is preparing for a decisive blitzkrieg by ramping up its campaigning.

The electorate of Karnataka will see almost the entire galaxy of BJP star campaigners, including party national president Rajnath Singh, senior leader Sushma Swaraj, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivaraj Singh Chouhan, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and possibly even L K Advani.

The party also succeeded in convincing Tollywood superstar Pavan Kalyan to campaign for party candidates in constituencies which have a high concentration of Telugu-speaking people.

BJP candidate from Chikballapur B N Bachche Gowda, who is locked in a no-holds barred fight against Union Minister Veerappa Moily of the Congress and H D Kumaraswamy of the JD(S), said Pavan Kalyan would address a rally in Chikballapur soon.

Speaking to Express, BJP state spokesperson Suresh Kumar said efforts are on to organise as many Modi rallies as possible in the next two weeks in the state.

According to party sources, Modi is likely to visit the state on April 8 to address rallies in Mysore and Bangalore. It should not be a surprise if BJP succeeds in getting Pavan Kalyan to address a rally in Bellary too.

Meanwhile, with just two weeks remaining for the April 17 Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka, the BJP is preparing for a decisive blitzkrieg.

Even as reports of an under current against Moily is doing the rounds in Chikballapur, BJP candidate Bachche Gowda alleged that Moily has entered into a secret pact with Kumaraswamy. BJP leadership views Kumaraswamy’s entry into the fray as a deliberate move to split the Vokkaliga votes, a big chunk of which would have gone to Bachche Gowda.

A worried Bachche Gowda is now hoping to  put his opponents on the back foot by bringing Pavan Kalyan and trying his best to get Modi too.
