Candidates to spend Rs 1 lakh for flags alone!

Kozhikode: Flag vendors are striking it rich during this elections. As the fight gets fierce by the day, the number of flags and their flambuoyance go up. In the poll market, every candidate would have to shell out at least Rs 1 lakh for flags alone, says an unofficial estimate. For every ward, a minimum of 3,000 flags would be required, say poll pundits. A big flag costs Rs 30, while a small one sells for Rs 15. Most of these flags are bought from Tirupur. A new campaign trend is the use of ribbons. Since they are symbol-free, they cannot be removed by election commission officials. Due to the plastic ban, festoons are being made of cloth.
