Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will embark on the Janashirvada Yatra in March, just about a month ahead of the State Legislative Assembly elections. The State is expected to go to polls in April-May 2018.

Prior to this, Siddaramaiah plans to undertake a month-long Janashirvada Yatra from December 13 and inaugurate a slew of projects across the State.

According to party sources, the yatra has been delayed in order to accommodate both State party president G. Parameshwara and the Chief Minister to show a united face of the party, at the behest of the high command. Dr. Parameshwara was reportedly reluctant to join the yatra initially.

Speaking to media persons, Siddaramaiah hit out at the BJP for its Parivarthana Yatra and said Congress’s belated start of the yatra was but inevitable. “Unlike the Opposition, we are ruling the State. We have to clear files and deliver services to people. Left with no work, the BJP leaders are going around the State. We can’t do that,” he said.

He said all leaders, including Parameshwara would participate in the Janashirvada Yatra.

Asked about his plans to visit Gujarat for the party’s campaign, Siddaramaiah said there was no high command direction to him to go to the State, which is going to polls next month. If required, Energy Minister D.K. Shivakujmar would go, he said.
