(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) not just arvind kejriwal?s party the election commission of india also seems to have spared a thought for ?aam aadmi? (common man) having allotted this month several common household goods as ?free? poll symbols to parties and independent candidates at least in gujarat
And most of the contestants have hailed the simple symbols ‘attractive enough to capture voters imagination’ and agree that they are imbued woth political meaning.
The insignificant secular democratic labour party of india will have as its symbol the humble three-wheeler auto-rickshaw ubiquitous on the streets of gujarat ciyties and little-known jaihind samaj party has been given a bucket as its logo.
Also while bahujan mukti party&rso;s emblem is a coat the republican party of india’s symbol in eight gujarat constituencies will be a familiar sewing machine.
Some of the household items already allotted include fan iron fridge pressure cooker gas cylinder brush. other badges accepted by parties and independents elsewhere in india are coconut bread carrot helmet hat frock ring harmonium camera and stethoscope.
Sources in the gujarat branch of the poll panel told khaleej times that a few still-unallotted symbols were scissors bed chessboard school bag pen-stand and ice-cream.
