PCC decides to campaign with "human posters"
Kolkata, Mar 10 (UNI) With walls now out of bounds, West Bengal Pradesh Congress added an innovative twist to their campaign deciding on using ''human posters'' to spread their message in the state.
''We met Chief Election Commissioner B B Tandon yesterday and told that due to the bar on campaigns for the exams, the party will get effectively one day to canvass for the first phase of polls which would be held on April 17,'' PCC Vice-President Pradip Bhattacharjee told newspersons.
As per the election rules, the candidate would get minimum 14 days for campaigning, but we are getting only a day, he added.
However, the party has also decided to hold group meetings, approach people individually and campaign door-to-door in the coming election, he said adding that people wearing vests asking to vote for their party will also roam the streets.
He also ruled out the possibility of alliance with the Trinamool Congress. ''I cannot say that the party could field candidadies in all the 294 seats, but we will contest in the maximum numbers,'' he said.
