Regional party candidate visits agriculture fields to woo farmersApril 18th, 2009 - 3:35 pm ICT by ANI
Lucknow, Apr 18 (ANI): Jaipal Pathik, a member of Rashtravadi (Nationalist) Communist Party (RCP) has found a unique way to campaign in his constituency, Mohanlal Ganj in Uttar Pradesh.
Considering that the farmers and their families are busy in fields and nobody is present at their homes in the villages, Pathik makes a round of the agricultural fields to interact with the farmers and solicit their votes.
Pathik says that he has realized that talking to the farmers while they are engaged in harvesting or tilling the lands is the best option for campaigning in his constituency. It also shows how each and every vote is counted and respected by the political party.
“Most of people are engaged in agriculture, people are busy in fields. So we are going to fields to meet people. When they are in need they come to us. But now we want votes, so we are going to them in fields.”
“In this way their work is also not hampered and we are also able to speak to them and able to convince them at their fields by explaining to them our viewpoints,” noted Jaipal Pathik.
With the election fever in India touching the high pitch, leaders of various political parties are adopting all possible means to woo the voters.
The elections for the 80 Lok Sabha seats of Uttar Pradesh are being held in five phases between April 16 and May 13.
The first phase of the polls was conducted on April 16.
The outcome of the elections will be declared on May 16. (ANI)
