Of symbols and their utility

There are many election symbols and ours is a natural one which has no comparison, said BJP MLC Somu Veerraju, at an election campaign in the city. "Our symbol (a lotus) rises above murky waters and spreads light. But, a cycle (TDP) cannot run without air in the tyres, a fan (YSR Congress Party) will turn only when there is power and anything can be drunk from a glass (Jana Sena)," he observed, mocking at the opposition parties’ public discourse on their symbols.
