Bidding for a seat for the fourth consecutive time in the general board of Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC), Atul Rajani, Congress’ senior most corporator, has been campaigning door-to-door, stressing to voters that besides him, they should remember three other Congress candidates as well for the February 21 election. But he says he has no time to campaign for party candidates in other wards of the civic body.
Along with fellow Congress candidates Divyaba Jadeja, Nimisha Raval and Yunus Juneja, Rajani campaigned in the residential quarters for staff of civil hospital on Sunday afternoon. A young man, addressing Rajani as ‘sir’ led them from one quarter to another.
“Myself Atul Rajani. We all four candidates are here. Char mat Congress ne (please give all your four votes to Congress),” Rajani tells the staff, showing his palm, which, coincidentally is also the election symbol of Congress, and moves to the next quarter.
