Virtual Campaign For Local Body Polls
The TN local body polls is round the corner and campaign seems to have reached a feverish pitch. One would probably expect Orkut to be last place for a candidate to come and campaign for the polls. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a scrap from a candidate belonging to Lok Paritran (yes, they are still around!). The local body polls are for wards and the Orkut communities usually exist for most assembly constituencies. The LP candidate seems be targetting all residents of a particular locality as the candidate doesn't have much information about the ward of the Orkut member.
Like most polls, this local body poll also has its fair share of interesting candidates and one of them is Batcha Singh, the owner of the popular Cozee restaurant near Besant Nagar Beach. Let's see whether his popularity can be converted into votes.
