The Karnataka polls are expected to be held in March- April. The dates for polling to the 225-member state Assembly are yet to be announced by the Election Commission (EC).

"Rahulji will visit Karnataka from February 10-12 for the first leg of the (poll) campaign," Parameshwara told reporters after the meeting.
