Exceptional Fervour in NDA’s favour, says Modi ahead of three South rallies

Ahead of his multiple engagements in the region on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that there is “exceptional fervour” in favour of the NDA in the south, where the BJP is making all efforts to make significant gains in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

On Monday, the PM will address rallies in Shivamogga in Karnataka and Telangana’s Jagtial, besides holding a roadshow in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.

“I will be addressing rallies in Jagtial and Shivamogga today. Later in the evening, will join the roadshow in Coimbatore. Be it Telangana, Karnataka or Tamil Nadu, there is exceptional fervour in the NDA’s favour,” Modi said in a post on social media platform X.

The Prime Minister’s rally in Shivamogga, which is former Chief Minister and BJP Parliamentary board member B S Yediyurappa’s home turf, comes at a time when disgruntled party leader K S Eshwarappa has announced plans to contest as an independent from the Shimoga constituency after his son was denied a ticket for the Haveri seat.

BJP has fielded Yediyurappa’s elder son B Y Raghavendra from Shimoga.

Modi’s rally in Jagtial, part of the Nizamabad constituency, is expected to have an impact on the neighbouring Karimnagar seat, both of which were won by BJP in 2019. The party is looking to better its tally of four out of 17 Lok Sabha seats in Telangana, in 2024.
