Ahead of the five state assembly elections, politicians from all states are going the extra mile, in order to please the voters. In an attempt to garner attention, Sharad Singh Kumar, of Rashtriya Aamjan Party contesting on the election symbol of a shoe, has adopted a unique style of campaigning.
Singh is polishing shoes of people ahead of Madhya Pradesh Elections and says that he will make use of his unique election symbol to turn it into a blessing.
Speaking to ANI, Singh said, ”It was a free poll symbol that no one was willing to take. We took it and we will turn it into a blessing”.
Singh is not alone to have chosen a peculiar way to woo voters. Akula Hanumanth, an independent candidate from Korutla constituency of Jagtial district in Telangana had also adopted an unconventional way to impress the voters.
In another out of the box campaigning style he was seen distributing slippers and a signed slip to citizens, asking them to hit him with the same if he doesn’t fulfill their expectations after winning.
Congress too has been trying hard to lure voters in the upcoming Mizoram Assembly elections. It has promised in its election manifesto to provide free laptops every year to students who clear the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) exam for Class 10 and above
While Madhya Pradesh will go for the assembly elections for its 230 constituencies on November 28, people of Telangana will vote to elect legislators on December 7. The Mizoram legislative assembly election will also be held on 28 November 2018. Results will be declared on December 11.
