Cong-BJP lock horns in poster war in city

BJP Congress War in Nagpur Praful Gurde Patil and Devendra Fadnavis3Nagpur.
As the poll activities are fast nearing the final voting day, draggers have been drawn extra closer while the parties are trying to build up their position before the voters. The current season of assembly elections is witnessing the aggressive public contact programme by various parties in its finishing stages, besides carrying out the full-fledged show of strength before the masses.

Leading the pack among all, are the two prime parties and traditional archrivals – Congress and BJP which are currently hooked up in a hoarding war.

The hoardings on display at various nooks and corners in the city are clear testimony to the fact that Congress and BJP have taken their fight to another level in order to secure their poll position.

As the BJP’s national campaigning team has sourced Modi mantra to relive the same magic it spelled during last Lok Sabha elections, the Congress is up with its take on every projection the opposite party is making. A similar case in point is a hoarding lauding the BJP’s intent to take Maharashtra on the path of progress, with the blessing of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, as the slogan reads out. The promotional hoarding carries the pictures of PM Narendra Modi along with Nagpur MP Nitin Gadkari. Interestingly, just below this hoarding is another piece on display by Congress candidate from South-West Nagpur Prafulla Gudadhe Patil who is seen questioning the BJP’s recalling Chhatrpati Shivaji at the time of elections.

Who will ride the tide… Hoardings by BJP and Congress on display at a prominent square in the city. Nagpur South West Congress candidate Prafulla Gudadhe Patil is seen taking a dig at the BJP’s intention behind lauding Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj in its promotional display.

It clearly hits out on Modi’s poll projection of going easy with the slogan of local appeal.

The tug of war between the Congress and BJP laid more importance in the light of the fact that both the parties are going solo, leaving their alliance partners to test their destiny alone in the poll fray.

So, in such a set of things when the going has got really tough for both the parties, trying out all possible antics to make the victory happen remains the order of the day. However, the actual verdict is still awaited from the masses who will decide upon the actual fate of these candidates.
