Buoyed by the success of its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s ‘Bharatha Gellisi’ rally, BJP is now drawing up plans to keep the momentum going till the Lok Sabha election.
“We will soon draw up plans to organise eight more rallies of Narendra Modi in Mysore, Hubli, Gulbarga, Mangalore, Belgaum, Bangalore Rural district, Davangere and Tumkur,” the party’s state general secretary C T Ravi told Express.
However, the proposed rallies would be smaller in size when compared to the one held here on November 17. “The party’s leaders will soon meet to draw up the plans. These rallies will be organised in end of December and January. Modi will be asked to pay three or four visits to the state over the next two months. He can address two or three rallies in a day,” Ravi said.
The party hopes that Modi’s rally could bring new enthusiasm among the party workers ahead of the Lok Sabha election. “We are optimistic about doing well in Mysore region too, which is the home turf of chief minister Siddaramaiah,” he said.
‘Talks with BSY in December’
Efforts to bring back KJP president and former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa to the party would be intensified after the Assembly elections in five states.
“The BJP national leadership is likely to invite Yeddyurappa for talks in this regard on November 7 or 8,” BJP sources said.
The state BJP leadership has already conveyed its decision to get Yeddyurappa back into the party and is waiting for the party national leadership to take a decision in this regard.
