Bengaluru, August 12

BJP president Amit Shah arrived here today on a three-day visit to Karnataka to re-energise the party’s rank and file, and asserted that the party stood united and would return to power in the Assembly poll next year under the leadership of state unit chief BS Yeddyurappa.

“Friends, our party stands united, and is geared up to take to the electoral battlefield under the leadership of Yeddyurappaji in the coming days, and see to it that we form a BJP government in the state,” Shah told party workers near the Kempe Gowda International Airport here.

He was accorded a rousing reception by BJP workers. He claimed the people had decided to vote the BJP to power as the party had been exposing the “corrupt, polarising and oppressive” rule of the Congress over the past five years.

“I am hopeful that the way the party, for the last five years, has been fighting against the corrupt, oppressive and polarising rule of the Congress, the people of this great state of Karnataka have decided to vote the BJP to power,” he said.

Shah said he had come here to realise the resolution of forming the next BJP government in Karnataka. “I have come here amidst BJP workers to realise ‘Ab ki baar, BJP sarkar’ (This time, a BJP government) resolution,” he added.

He said when Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Vijay Rath’ (victory chariot) would reach Karnataka in next February-March, party workers should be ready with their quest to make inroads into the southern India by winning the Karnataka Assembly poll. — PTI
