Hyderabad (Telangana) [India] November 23 (ANI): Ahead of assembly elections in Telangana, the state is witnessing some renowned politicians wooing voters with appealing promises.
Amidst all this, Akula Hanumanth, an independent candidate from Korutla constituency of Jagtial district, has grabbed the attention of voters with his out-of-the-box campaigning style.
While doing a door-to-door campaign for elections, Hanumanth has been distributing slippers and a signed slip to citizens, asking them to hit him with the same if he doesn't fulfill their expectations after winning.
"If I fail to bring development in my constituency then voters hold a right to publicly hit me with slippers," Hanumanth said while canvassing.
Elections in Telangana are scheduled for December 7.
Hanumanth's smart campaigning trick has caught the attention of Korutla, but one has to wait to see if this approach would help him to win the seat.
Notably, Korutla is an important seat, currently represented by the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi's MLA K Vidyasagar Rao. (ANI)
