BJP State President B.Y. Vijayendra said that the Lok Sabha elections may be announced any time soon.

“We have decided to win all 28 Lok Sabha seats. I am not saying this… People of the state are saying this. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will come to power again. BJP and JD(S) workers will unitedly fight and ensure victory of NDA candidates,” he said.
