Lucknow, Feb 10: A sweetmeat stall in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, has added some much-needed 'sweetness' to the hectic campaign trail of the Bharatiya Janata Party, literally.
According to ANI, the sweet shop has come up with Modi (after Prime Minister Narendra Modi) and Kamal (Lotus--the symbol of the BJP) jalebis to entice voters to elect candidates from the saffron party in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2017.
Jalebis are traditional Indian sweets, soaked in sugar syrup, and generally come in pretzel or circular shapes.
The elections in Uttar Pradesh have been distributed in seven phases, beginning February 11. The BJP's main rival is the Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance forged recently. Almost all the top leaders of the BJP, including PM Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and home minister Rajnath Singh-- are campaigning for various candidates in the state.
Now, we have to wait till the election results are declared to find out whether these jalebis have succeeded in creating their magic for the BJP. Or, Modi wave (the factor behind the landmark victory that the BJP achieved during 2014 Lok Sabha polls) is still intact across the country.
