Patna: Eateries encashing on the election season offer discounts to people with inked fingers

Both the constituencies under Patna district, Patna Sahib and Patliputra are voting today. Congress Shatrughan Sinha is contesting against BJP's Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Some eateries in Patna, Bihar cashing on the election fever, have decided to offer discounts to those customers who have voted on Sunday in the last phase of the general election.

A multi-cuisine restaurant on Fraser Road, Lakhu Ka Dhaba, has planned to offer a discount of 17 per cent to those who show their inked finger.

“Since we are going to elect the 17th Lok Sabha in 2019, we have put up a discount of 17 per cent for voters who will visit our restaurant today after casting their vote. Our idea also is to promote voting,” said Vijay Kumar, a staff of the restaurant.

Similarly, another eatery called Laziz Tandoori on Fraser Road is also offering a range of discounts on various food items, said it, manager, Dushyant Raj, as per reports.

“On Sunday, we will be offering a discount to voters, who come to our place and show the inked finger, and, depending on the results on May 23, will offer a bigger discount on that day,” Raj said.

Similarly, several restaurants and bars across Mumbai had followed the same strategy to boost their sales when Mumbai had gone to polls. Mumbaikars had enjoyed 10-25 per cent discount while the restaurants had introduced a special marked-down menu for those who voted.

Meanwhile, following a similar trend, Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) had also seen specially curated menus offering dishes named after political leaders to extra discounts.

The two constituencies in Patna district, Patna Sahib and Pataliputra, are both voting today. The main city falls with the Patna Sahib constituency, represented by sitting MP Shatrughan Sinha fighting on a Congress ticket this time. BJP’s Ravi Shankar Prasad is challenging him. Results would be declared on May 23.
