Into a full-time battle ready mood for the May 12 polls into Karnataka assembly, BJP President Amit Shah has moved into a private rented house at city's Fairfield Layout area.
The residence will also work as an interim war room wherein the BJP chief will monitor and micro-manage all political developments in the state.
According to a BJP leader, alternative arrangements have to be made as Mr Shah cannot stay for long in a government guest house or hotel for longer stay in view of election code of conduct. The party's state unit is likely to pay for the rent, sources said.
Several BJP leaders like BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and Bihar Minister Mangal Pandey are also likely to camp in the city along with other BJP leaders who would be visiting the state from time to time. (UNI)
