One such candidate is going to people's doors with a piece of sandal and asking them to beat him with the same if he did not fulfil the promises he is making ahead of the elections.
The candidate, named Akula Hanumant, is an Independent one who is making a kind of unique appeal to the voters. Videos of his act have gone viral on the social media and people are even asking other leaders and candidates to do something similar.
According to Hanumant, he is an Independent candidate who doesn't have backing of any big party and neither any party symbol. He said he is confident of winning in this election and if he does, he will fulfil the promises he has made.
The election in Telangana was necessitated after Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao decided to bring it ahead by a few months in a bid to renew his mandate.
