What role are greeting cards playing this poll season?

Story image

This Poila Baisakh morning was different for residents of Dumdum Lok Sabha Constituency. They were greeted by various political parties on the morning of Paila Baishakh through greeting cards! Yes, those very cards that we have forgotten today in an age of whatsapp messages and e-cards.

We often attend various invitations sent by different shops where halkhata plays an important role. But the contesting leaders this time showed innovation by bringing in the lost art of sending greeting cards. Be it Trinamool Congress candidate Satyam Roy, CPM candidate Nepaldeb Bhattacharya or BJP candidate Shamik Bhattacharya - everyone opted for greeting cards to reach out to the people. Political parties have planned to distribute greeting cards throughout the constituency, centrally or under the leadership of the ruling party.
