The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Ear­lier, as we en­tered Mo­d­i­na­gar – not that Modi's na­gar – we ae greeted by a gi­ant poster of Gu­jar­mal Modi who founded this town start­ing with a sugar mill in 1933. To­day, some of us as­so­ciate him with be­ing IPL founder Lalit Modis grand­fa­ther. Here, I en­counter Raju. Just Raju, who owns a fran­chise of his own: The Great Mi­lap Band. His shop also pro­vides horses, bug­gies, lights gen­er­a­tors, dhols and fore­works if and when re­quired. So which po­lit­i­cal party does he think will hire The Great Mi­lap Band and its ac­ces­sories on March 11 when the elec­tion re­sults are an­nounced? “It's heard to tell, but all I can say is that the wed­ding sea­son's back again on March 1 and 2. And that's all I care for.” Is that the voice of the new Ut­tar Pradesh that goes to the polls from to­day?
