Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah’s yatra follows those by rivals JD(S) and BJP in the state. Photo: Hemant Mishra/MintBengaluru: Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah will undertake a month-long tour of the state starting 13 December, announcing new schemes, laying foundations stones for proposed projects and inaugurating government programmes. “The Chief Minister’s yatra is to inaugurate and lay foundation stones among other government sponsored events. It is separate from the party-organized yatra,” Siddaramaiah’s office said. However, Siddaramaiah, whose son is expected to contest the elections, has stated that the final decision rests with the party high command.
