Haita assembly byelection: Vintage car rally for Congress candidate
Times of India
RANCHI: Mahatma Gandhi had travelled from Ranchi to Ramgarh in a Ford in 1940 to take part in the Ramgarh Congress Conference.
The proud possessor of the vintage car has decided to take out a car rally to garner support for the Congress candidate for the Haita assembly byelection.
Apart from the heritage car, the rally will also see Dodge vintage car.
The Jaiswal family here imported the car from the US in 1922.
"It is not a political gimmick or an official campaign for the party. We just want that the voters should elect a responsible candidate who thinks for their welfare," said Aditya Jaiswal, the grandson of Laxminarayan Jaiswal who had purchased the car.
There will be no banners or placards installed on the vintage cars.
The rally will start from Birsa Chowk and take a tour of various localities in the city. "It will take a 6-km-long tour in the city," said Jaiswal.
The organizers of the car rally have requested Union minister and Ranchi MP Subodh Kant Sahay for flagging off the rally. Sahay's brother is the Congress candidate in the assembly bypoll.
