After Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Mandya Lok Sabha constituency, where JD(S) candidate Nikhil is contesting against BJP -backed Independent Sumalatha, it will be the turn of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to pay a visit.
On Monday evening, Mr. Naidu will address a rally at Pandavapura stadium. JD(S) supremo H.D. Deve Gowda will also be present at the rally.
Incidentally, Mr. Gowda had also campaigned for Mr. Naidu in Andhra Pradesh, which went to polls in the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections on April 11.
When asked if he will also campaign for Mr. Gowda in Tumakuru, party sources said that Mr. Naidu will only be taking part in the Pandavapura rally.
Sources said that Mr. Naidu will speak to the larger Telugu population in the State from the rally, seeking votes for the JD(S).
