During his visit, the BJP president is scheduled to meet party legislators from the state.

He will also chair meetings of the party's state core group and political affairs committee. Shah will discuss the Assembly elections with the state leaders, the BJP said in a statement.

Besides attending a series of meetings with local leaders, he will also address a gathering of college students and intellectuals in Bangalore.

Shah's visit is also important in view of a factional feud between state party president BS Yeddyurappa and former deputy chief minister KS Eshwarappa.

The central leadership had sought to control the issue by acting against some state leaders. Shah has already announced that Yeddyurappa will be the party's chief ministerial candidate for the assembly poll.
