Kandivali - The Bharatiya Janata Party and the Shiv Sena, allies till recently and sworn foes for the ongoing BMC election, have been trying every trick in the book to woo the voter.
At Thakur Village ward number 25 this morning, the two parties stooped to a new low. Party workers of Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janta Party were seen wearing T-shirts printed with numerals. Sena workers wore T-shirts with the numerical 2 written on it, while BJP workers wore T-shirts that said 3.
Clandestinely, the workers wound their way among prospective voters asking them to cast their vote for the 'second' or the 'third' name on the list. Things went smoothly till some BJP workers complained about their rivals to the Election Commission. Consequently, both sides were kicked off the polling grounds. The Sena candidate's husband, Yogesh Bhoir told Mumbai Live,"BJP candidates are telling people to vote for them wearing the T-shirt with 3 written on it."
We are still waiting for the result of this 'numbers' game.
