BJP President Amit Shah began his fourth round of visit to the poll-bound Karnataka on Friday, with a tour of old Mysuru areas, asserting that Siddaramaiah and JDS would receive "biggest shock of their lives" from the region in the May 12 assembly polls.

"It is said that the BJP is a bit weak here (Old Mysuru region), but after seeing the work of the party workers, I expect Siddaramaiahji and the JD(S) to get the biggest shock of their lives from this (Old) Mysuru region," Shah said in a party convention at Mysuru.

Shah further stated that Siddaramaiah’s "time" has come to an end and said that his party, if voted to power, would make efforts to hunt down the killers of RSS and BJP workers in Karnataka.

"I would like to tell the people of the state that Siddaramaiah's time has come to an end. Soon after BJP forms the next government under Yeddyurappa's leadership, it will make all efforts to hunt down killers (of RSS and BJP workers) from any corner of the world." Shah stated.

During his address, Shah accused Siddaramaiah of playing with Karnataka's pride by not celebrating the "Jayanti" of noted Kannada poet Kuvempu or renowned engineer Sir M Vishveswaraiah. He said, "Siddaramaiah only remembers to celebrate the Jayanti of Tipu Sultan (the 18th-century ruler of Mysore) to get votes."

Speaking to the reporters after meeting the family of BJP worker Raju, who was hacked to death in March 2016. BJP President assured: "They will be sent to jail and handed out stringent punishment."

"In politics, there is no room for violence. If Siddaramaiah and his government think they can stall our ideology from spreading, then he is mistaken," he added.

The BJP president had his third leg of the tour on March 26.
