Congress president Rahul Gandhi will undertake the eighth leg of his campaign for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections today and tomorrow.
Resuming his "Jana Aashirwada Yatre", the Congress chief is expected to cover Bidar, Kalburgi (Gulbarga), Gadag and Haveri districts of the southern state during the eighth leg of his campaign.
“The Congress president is likely to hold corner meetings in Bidar on May 3. The next day, he is expected to address public and corner meetings in Kalburgi, Gadag and Haveri districts,” a party source said on Tuesday.
He added that as the poll date nears, Gandhi is expected to reach out to the masses in areas he has not covered during his campaign so far.

Polling will be held in a single phase for all the 224-Assembly constituencies in the state, including 36 reserved for the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and 15 for Scheduled Tribes (STs). Counting of votes will take place on May 15.
