Branding of an Uncommon Things In a Most Common Place

This program has been broadcast at over thousand tea stall locations which been identified by BJP’s managers in over 300 cities across India, including 22 towns and cities in Gujarat, through video conferencing. According to the BJP, it is an out-of-the-box initiative by Mr. Modi, especially against the traditional way of electoral campaigning that is conducted by other political parties in India. Whirling the criticizes to Modi’s benefits, the poll managers of BJP have affirmed to use the background of Mr. Modi to reach a large number of voters across India simply by inviting them to enjoy an interactive session with the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate through this tea campaign.
