Leaving no stones unturned to use their Star campaigner, the Bharatiya Janata Party has planned a massive 36 km mega roadshow by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 6 May in Bengaluru. The roadshow, which comes just 4 days before the state goes on polls in all its constituencies, is being touted as the final “Big show” by the party in the state. 

BJP’s MP from Bengaluru PC Mohan gave details of the PM’s roadshow at a press meet in the city on Wednesday. “It was decided to move the roadshow to May 6 instead of May 8, which is a Monday. The prime minister told us that the roadshow on Monday will cause traffic problems for the public. We have held meetings with the police and concerned officials to plan the programme in such a way that it won’t affect the public.”

The roadshow will pass through 18 Assembly constituencies and will be held in the morning and in the evening. “Through our roadshow, we believe over 10 lakh people will take part and give their blessings to the Prime Minister,” Mohan said.

The first roadshow, covering 10.1 km, will be held in Bengaluru Central from 10 am to 1 pm. The roadshow will start from the Suranjan Das Road as soon as PM Modi lands at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) and will pass through Mahadevapura, K R Puram, C V Raman Nagar, Shivajinagar, and Shanti Nagar Assembly constituencies.

The second roadshow will be held from 4 pm to 10 pm in Bengaluru South. The 26.5 km roadshow will cover Bangalore South, Bommanahalli, Jayanagar, Padmanabha Nagar, Basavanagudi, Chikpet, Chamarajpet, Gandhi Nagar, Mahalakshmi Layout, Vijaya Nagar, Govind Raj Nagar, Rajaji Nagar, and Malleshwaram Assembly constituencies.
