BENGALURU: The Ekta Morcha organised by the BJP Backward Classes Morcha on Sunday projected State party chief B S Yeddyurappa as the chief ministerial candidate for the 2018 Assembly elections.
BJP national president Amit Shah hailed Yeddyurappa’s contributions during his tenure and urged the gathering to choose a BJP government in Karnataka.

Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation, Shah said the move has given opposition leaders Rahul Gandhi and Mamata Banerjee “sleepless nights”.

The mega rally threw traffic out of gear due to the heavy entry of vehicles of BJP workers from different districts into Bengaluru for the meeting. Rallyists choked roads in the vicinity of the Palace Grounds, the venue. “Despite our best efforts, it took us about an hour and half to clear the traffic at the key junction after the event,” said a traffic official.
