'Magicians' to campaign for BJP in MP polls. What's next?Last updated on Oct 21, 2018, 11:41 am
Seeking a fourth straight term in Madhya Pradesh, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) intends to cast a 'magic spell' on voters during the upcoming State Assembly polls.
It would be roping in magicians to highlight the work done by it in the last 15 years and compare it with that of the previous Congress government, said Rajnish Agrawal, MP BJP spokesman.

"We have plans to hire magicians for campaigning and publicity," Agrawal said, adding that magic shows would be organized at marketplaces to reach out to voters, especially in rural and semi-urban areas.
The number of magicians to be utilized for this is yet to be decided.
The budget allocation for these activities is also being worked out, he said.

BJP to also highlight 'poor work' done under Congress tenure
Explaining more about their new plan, Agrawal said that the magic shows would also highlight the "poor condition" of roads, electricity supply, and basic amenities during the 10-year Congress government headed by Digvijay Singh between 1993 and 2003 in the state.
The MP Assembly polls will be held on November 28 and counting of votes will take place on December 11.
