Etawah, Mar 27 (ANI): A candidate of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Etawah in Uttar Pradesh has adopted unique means for campaigning to woo the voters.
Gauri Shankar, who is contesting from Erawah, is trying to woo the voters by campaigning on a bullock cart, a horse cart and rickshaw.
According to Shankar, these modes of transport are the common man's transport and that is why he is using them for his campaigning.
"Bullock carts, horse carts and rickshaws are the vehicles used by the common man in every nook and corner of the country. But if I receive your blessings, I too may travel in big cars with a beacon light on the top, " he said.
To watch the unusual view, many residents came on streets and cheered for him, but the former district head of Congress from Etawah, Suraj Singh Yadav was not quite happy with the way campaigning proceeded.
"During the time of elections, politicians should adopt normal ways of campaigning rather than campaigning in a dramatic manner. If a candidate is aged, he or she can use a transport. But ordinarily normal ways should be used, " said Suraj Singh Yadav. By Kamna Mathur (ANI)
