Bengaluru, DHNS: BJP?state president B S Yeddyurappa and party general secretary Shobha Karandlaje have urged Kannadigas residing in the US to campaign for the BJP during the 2018 Assembly elections.

The IT wing of the party had organised a video conference of Yeddyurappa with NRI Kannadigas in?Bengaluru on Saturday.

Karandlaje, in her interaction, said in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, a large number of NRIs had taken leave of absence from their work and had come to India to campaign for Narendra Modi.

“Similarly, you must come here to campaign for Yeddyurappa so that he can become chief minister again.

You can either work in your home district or sit in the party head office to lend support. Please save your leave for the next 15 months to be here during the elections,” she said.

A similar request was made to the audience by Yeddyurappa.

While replying to a question, Yeddyurappa said the Centre had sanctioned IIT to Dharwad. If the BJP returns to power, then Dharwad and other Northern Karnataka districts would get institutions to teach IT education. In addition, basic infrastructure would be improved in the region.

‘Unclear sand policy’
Replying to a question on the industrial sector, Yeddyurappa said the present government is confused over its sand mining policy. “When we come to power, we will ensure that iron ore produced here is utilised for domestic consumption. Mining, tourism and irrigation would be our priority,” he added.
