Srinagar: The Bharatiya Janata Party has ditched saffron and adopted green in its ongoing campaigning for the Lok Sabha pols.
On Thursday, a photo of Sheikh Khalid Jehangir, the BJP candidate from the Srinagar parliamentary constituency, splashed in green on the pages of Srinagar dailies.
“Khalid hai toh solid hai (If it is Khalid, it’s solid)” read the bold caption in English and Urdu on the quarter-page advertisement.
An image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a light pink waistcoat with his arms crossed was placed right next to the message (also in green): “Development for Kashmir, vote for Khalid”.
The advertisement was designed on a green background. The BJP logo, the lotus – the petals of which are usually coloured saffron – was designed in white and black, with the inscription ‘BJP’ underneath in green. The bottom of the advertisement bore the message in Urdu: Pamposh ko vote do (Vote for lotus).
