Bangalore: The huge turnout at a rally in South Bangalore addressed by Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi has given sleepless nights to the Congress which is trying hard to return to power in Karnataka.

The success of the rally has instilled confidence among BJP workers who have planned to organize two more rallies to be addressed by Modi in Mangalore and Belgaum on May2.

Addressing the massive rally on Sunday, Modi raised the issue of common man and said that BJP aims at overall development of Karnataka. He, however, did not touch upon the Hindutva issue.

In a multi-cornered contest, as many as 3,692 candidates are in the fray for 224-member Assembly House as the state goes to polls on May 5.

Meanwhile, BS Yeddyurappa, who quit the party over alleged corruption charges, is reported to play spoil sport for BJP.
