Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally on 28 January on the conclusion of the yatra to be led by the party's chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa.

Party workers from the state's 28,000 polling booths are expected to take part in Shah's rally. Top party leaders, including Union ministers and chief ministers, will attend the yatra, which will pass through the state's 224 Assembly seats, the statement said.
