New Delhi: BJP chief Amit Shah will be on a three-day tour of poll-bound Karnataka from Monday, during which he will attend a number of events and hold public meetings, according to a party statement.

Shah will chair party meetings in the district and visit the home of Deepak Rao, a BJP worker who was killed recently, it read. He is also scheduled to address a fishermen convention in Udupi.
Shah will address a convention of social media activists in Udupi on Wednesday and meet the family of another murdered party worker, Paresh Mehta, it said.
