Jo Ram ko laayen hai hum unko laayenge (We will vote for those who made Ram Temple possible). This is the BJP slogan for the poll-bound Uttar Pradesh and Surat-based traders have landed the order to print sarees, posters and other campaign material for the saffron party.
Sources said more than 50,000 sarees will be printed in Surat, ranging in price from Rs 150 to Rs 350. They will be distributed in UP and other states going to polls in the days ahead.
This is not the first time that Surat traders have got orders to prepare campaign material for any political party. What is unique about the latest order is that the slogan and photos of PM Narendra Modi and UP CM Yogi Adityanath will be digitally printed on sarees. The design will be replicated and printed on dupattas, stoles, party flags and posters as well.
President of Textile Youth Brigade and digital printer Lalit Sharma told Mirror, The sarees will bear BJP’s lotus symbol, the slogan and photos of Modi and Yogi. Earlier, during the Assembly polls we had got orders for sarees with prints of the Uri incident and homecoming of Captain Abhinandan. Surat is the hub of digital printing and we have printed sarees and sent them to poll bound states.
Meanwhile, saree manufacturer Manohar Sihag said, Traders are happy with the government’s decision to rollback the new GST rate on clothes.
