Hyderabad, Feb 10 (ANI): While the general elections are round the corner, an entrepreneur in Hyderabad is busy custom designing election vehicles for several political leaders.
K. Sudhakar, the owner of Sudha cars, who made a small fortune for himself by designing around 20 election vehicles during the last polls, has once again turned his garage into a workshop for making vehicles for his political clients.
The demands range from having a sofa-cum-bed inside the vehicle, to having mini kitchens, toilets, refrigerators, open roof to address the public and even television sets for the owners to keep in touch with the latest happenings.
"Last time, I made about 20 vehicles, but this time, I am expecting more orders because politicians have now realised that it is a necessity and not a luxury," Sudhakar said.
Sudhakar says he started work on the first vehicle for these elections about a month ago and the cost of his craftsmanship works out to an average of 800,000 rupees per vehicle. However, the price can vary depending on what all comforts the vehicle is to be fitted with.
These vehicles are more popular with lawmakers having large constituencies.
Most political parties are preparing themselves for the general elections, which are expected to be held before May this year. (ANI)
