Poster war in Chhattisgarh not only among parties but also between Naxals and Election Commission


As a pitched political battle unfolds between the ruling BJP and its main challenger Congress in Chhattisgarh, another war is literally on display between the Naxals and the election authorities on walls and hoardings across the state’s Naxal-hit areas.

At some places, the huge banners put out by the Election Commission asking people to celebrate ‘vote pandum’, which in local Gondi language means ‘festival of vote’, actually outnumber and outsize the posters of various political parties too. Besides, many polling booths are being decorated like temples.

Officials said the posters have been put up to counter the Naxal propaganda asking people not to vote. The interiors of Dantewada and Sukma regions, which have been among the epicentres of Naxalism in the state, are full of posters put up by Naxals asking villagers to boycott the elections. Read More
