Chikkamagaluru: Following the recent BJP state president and opposition leader elections, heightened activity is observed among BJP workers in the state. In Chikkamagaluru, BJP workers have initiated a dynamic poster campaign targeting the Congress government, expressing sarcasm and dissatisfaction with the ruling party’s policies. Notably, the posters feature a “Shadow Chief Minister,” alluding to CM Siddaramaiah, and aim to scrutinize the government’s proclaimed “five guarantees.”
In a creative protest, the BJP Yuva Morcha in Chikkamagaluru city has taken a satirical approach, placing posters around the city that convey both humor and discontent against the government. These posters, which target Siddaramaiah as the “Shadow CM,” strategically adorn prominent locations like the Taluk Office, Mescom office, Taluk Panchayat, and Pravasi Mandir.
The lively poster campaign, initiated by BJP workers in Chikkamagaluru city, commenced early in the morning and seeks to channel dissatisfaction with the government through creative and satirical means. One of the posters humorously questions the whereabouts of the Energy Minister, K.J. George, suggesting that the “Energy Minister is missing.” It adds a touch of irony by likening the search for the minister to searching for Sonia Gandhi’s “Kappa” (hafta) this month, humorously implying that the answer lies in the increased electricity bills.
These posters, filled with sarcasm, express discontent not only with the government’s five guarantees but also specifically target the Energy Minister. Police have intervened at the protest site, conducting an investigation. Additionally, posters placed in the office of the district in-charge minister and the energy minister were promptly removed by staff, with the police ensuring the clearance of posters from government offices as well. The satirical poster campaign stands as a unique form of protest, blending humor with political critique to make a statement against the state government’s policies.
