RAIPUR: Contrary to speculation that he was cancelling his yatra to Bangalore in the wake of the arrest of B S Yeddyurappa, BJP leader L K Advani on Sunday said his visit to the city is on schedule.

“I have no information about my yatra in Bangalore getting cancelled,” Advani said when asked if his plans in Karnataka had changed following the arrest of former BJP Chief Minister Yedduyurappa.

“I will go to Karnataka and also go to Bangalore,” Advani said.

Party sources had on Saturday said the October 30 public rally of L K Advani in Bangalore has been cancelled.

However, the sources had said that Advani would visit coastal parts of the state like Mangalore, Udupi and Honnavara on October 31.

The sources had said that BJP decided against holding public meeting in Bangalore apparently in the light of recent developments that have embarrassed the party with former chief minister Yeddyurappa and another former minister S N Krishnaiah Setty sent to jail in cases relating to alleged land scams.
