Election Campaigning:Asking for votes or selling a movie?

Election campaigning for the Gujarat polls has shown us that our respected politicians can go to any extent to ask for votes. Rather than focusing on state development they are more focused on pulling each other down rather than putting themselves up.

This is the recent development in campaign

At the fag end of electioneering for the two-phased Assembly polls in Gujarat, the ruling BJP on Thursday published an advertisement carrying an appeal by party veteran and former Prime Minister A B Vajpayee to bring the party back in power in the state.

Throughout the campaigning for the 182-member assembly, it has been out and out Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s show.

With just two days to go for the second phase of polls, scheduled for December 16, the BJP has issued an appeal by Vajpayee in the local newspapers.

Vajpayee, who did not campaign in the polls due to health reasons, tells the people that they again have an opportunity to ensure a good future for the state for five years.

“I am confident that you as in the past will choose a government which is committed towards growth and development of the state,” he says in the appeal, asking people to return Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to power.

He further says: “Gujarat has made rapid strides towards development in the last few years. It has set new records in the area of development. The development has benefited people belonging to all strata of society”.

Promising that the party would provide “a progressive and proud Gujarat”, Vajpayee says the BJP governments – be they at the Centre or in the states – have development as their target.

The first phase of election was held on December 11.
