Bengaluru, November 24: The lush green Centre for Ancient Wisdom looked in deep embrace of serenity. Lotus bloomed in a small circle of raised platform. Peace prevailed on the campus. The only sign of activity was in the cafeteria where the young men and women gathered for the evening tea and coffee.

The group of the people emerged out after the darkness set in. They sported saffron ties. It was a day long treat for them at the centre on the outskirts of Bengaluru. They were brought from several polling booths of the Bengaluru district. The agenda was stage training for the workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as part of the poll preparations for the Karnataka Assembly elections, which would be held in another five months.

“We had come here in the morning. We are all from the Bengaluru district. We were given training in speaking from the stages. Mock speeches were given by us under the guidance of the trainers,” said Rupa B. a BJP worker, who was leaving the campus in a group of women.

Another BJP worker said that the day-long retreat was to given a fulsome training in speaking from the stages to prepare for the elections. “We will be addressing small group of people in our polling booths soon. We have been provided with the relevant literature on the performance of Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre and also of Basavaraj Bommai’s in Karnataka,” said another BJP worker.

The retreat was arranged by the BJP unit of the Bengaluru district, with the exercise being held in all the districts of Karnataka to train an army of public speakers, who can spread the narrative of the saffron outfit in the run up to the Assembly elections in the state. The Karnataka unit of the BJP has already operationalized a war room for the preparations of the Assembly elections.

The incumbent BJP government is bracing up for a three cornered Assembly elections in Karnataka, with Congress and JD (S) also building up their respective poll campaign in the state. While Bommai will be leading the BJP charge in the state, Congress is banking on the team work of former state Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the party chief in Karnataka DK Shivkumar. MB Patil is the campaign committee chief of the Congress unit in Congress.
