As the Madhya Pradesh assembly election is due on November 28, politicians and candidates are not leaving any stone unturned to influence voters with different and unique skills of campaigning.
Recently, a candidate of Rashtriya Aamjan Party, Sharad Singh Kumar, whose party symbol is shoe, has called for attention of the voters and media due to his unique way of promoting his party and campaigning in a different style, rather the manifesto one.
Sharad was seen polishing the shoes of people while he was rallying for his party, ahead of the Madhya Pradesh state assembly polls which is bound to happen on November 28, along with Mizoram assembly election.
Sharad told ANI that “It was a free poll symbol that no one was willing to take. We took it and we will turn it into a blessing.” He is using the political symbol effectively to showcase his new style of campaigning in the polls whereas other parties, including the BJP and Congress have got hefty donation from the big corporate houses.
The campaign by Sharad Singh is quite similar to that of Akula in Telangana, who is an independent candidate and has been handing over shoes and a letter of resignation to the public, asking them to beat him from the particular shoe and that he would resign after signing the letter. A unique way of campaigning, yet it all depends on the poll results whether the aspect of such campaign can bear some fruitful results.
The polls of every state will end by December 7 and the results will be declared on December 11.
