Lucknow: The festival of Holi, this year, brings some very special verities of colours and water guns named after noted politicians and other controversial political leaders; the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi and Jawaharlal Nehru University student union president Kanhaiyya are the latest entrants in this list.
The varieties include the names of numerous leaders of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP), Congress, etc.
- “Modi water guns and Priyanka colours are demanded most by the purchasers”, said shopkeepers.
- According to a shopkeeper, the common perception says the results of the next assembly elections can be hypothetically judged by the sales of colours and water pistols, named after particular parties or politicians.
