Ulsoor Market





Remains of an earlier election.

Thanks to the Election Commission's 'Code of Conduct', we don't find such wall paintings during election time anymore. The money is now used to give saris, booze, gold earrings, etc.

However, CK Jaffer Sheriff's drooping face (and a past candidate for the state legislature) continues to remain on a wall in Ulsoor Market. His pet constituency, Bangalore North has shifted and shrunk after delimitation and Jaffer Sheriff has to slug it out in a different part of the city. While it's OK for the wall painting to survive,the sad part is that old men cum mob leaders like him manage to get their names on the voting machine (To earn the ticket, he proved his strength by organising a protest against Saddam's execution that led to riots. News report here) .

And don't forget, he's also trying to garner "sympathy" votes. Just read today's TOI where he's thanked people to have stood by him when his son died on Apr 20.
