Bengaluru: After Congress president Rahul Gandhi, during his recent tour of Hyderabad-Karnataka, launched a full fledged attack on the ruling BJP at the Centre claiming 'they had an RSS man planted in every ministry,' it is the turn of the BJP to hit back. Leading the charge for the saffron party will be Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself and BJP president Amit Shah, who will be arriving in the state next week to launch a poll blitzkrieg.
