The bus tours are part of the Congress’s ‘Praja Dhwani Yatre’ which was kicked off from Belagavi on January 11.


Leader of Opposition in Karnataka, Siddaramaiah and state Congress President D K Shivakumar will embark on separate bus tour from Friday, as part of party's 'Praja Dhwani Yatre' ahead of assembly elections, after concluding the joint tour in the first phase.

One team of Congress leaders headed by Siddaramaiah will tour Assembly constituencies in north Karnataka region, while Shivakumar will be leading the way in southern districts. Siddaramaiah, a former Chief Minister, will kickstart his bus tour along with a team of 35 party leaders from Basavakalyan in Bidar district. He will first visit Anubhava Mantapa, where he is expected to pay respects to the statue of 12th century social reformer Basaveshwara before addressing a public meeting there. During the yatra till February 18 (which accounts for breaks to attend events and Assembly sessions), he will cover Assembly constituencies in the districts of Bidar, Kalaburagi, Vijayapura, Bagalkote, Hubballi, Dharwad, and Koppal.

Shivakumar will be undertaking his bus yatra between February 3 and 9, heading a team of 54 party leaders. He will start his yatra in Mulbagal in Kolar district, after performing pooja at the famous Kurudumale Maha Ganapathi temple. He will cover Assembly segments in Kolar, Chitradurga, Bengaluru Rural and Shivamogga districts. Shivakumar hails from Vokkaliga community, which is a dominant community in several parts of southern districts.

Hitting the road in the poll-bound state, the Congress on January 11 had begun its first phase of statewide 'Praja Dhwani Yatre' from Belagavi. As part of the bus yatra then, both Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah, who are nursing chief ministerial ambitions in the event of the Congress coming to power, travelled jointly until January 29.
