Hisar witnesses political colours of Dussehra

HISAR: The Vijaya Dashami here saw political colours, as supporters of Anna Hazare and members of India Against Corruption, Congress workers and INLD activists reached the venue of Ravana Dahan at old college ground to spread their respective messages.

Interestingly, Congress candidate Jai Prakash, had arranged high-tech gadgets here by installing big LCD screens and DJ sound to canvass votes for Congress, while INLD supporters distributed pamphlets in support of Ajay Singh Chautala.

High drama was witnessed when the audience tried to stop them from doing this, but they did not pay any heed and continued their work. Soon, the `'Anna factor'' came into play when IAC members were welcomed by the audience.

"We welcome the supporters of Anna Hazare, because he is not political. Parties indulging in such kind of pomp and show during Ramleela is very strange for us and not appreciated by the public," said Umesh Pandey, a city resident. Another resident, Rameshwer Singh said, "The meaning of Ramleela has changed in this election. It's not good that they are playing politics during Vijaya Dashami."

There is a village near Delhi, which does not burn the effigy of Ravana as the residents believe that the Sri Lanka ruler spent his childhood here.
