VIJAYAWADA: Just as greeting cards are available for every occasion and emotion vinyl hoardings and banners have revolutionised the way individuals and groups can reach out to the public.
With the elections fast approaching those aspiring to contest in them are making the best use of the vinyl revolution.
Political leaders are exploiting every occasion to reach out to the public using vinyl hoardings and banner.
Several of these leaders vied one another to put up banners and hoardings to greet pilgrims that are expected to come to the city from surrounding towns to take a holy dip in the Krishna River on the eve of Mahasivaratri.
While those affiliated to the Telugu Desam Party put up small hoardings on the circle around the N.T.Rama Rao statue in Patamata centre, Kankipadu MLA Devineni Rajasekhar put up a banner right in front of the statue.
Mr Rajasekhar’s followers say that their leader who was faithful to NTR “to the very end” had a right to put up a banner notwithstanding the fact that it is “partially” eclipsing the statue.
Another Congress leader came up with a tricoloured vinyl hoarding that he entitled “New Bulletin” with three columns criticizing all the Congress rivals like the Telugu Desam, Left parties and the PRP.
