Mangalore, Apr 13: With each political party looking to woo electorates in the best possible ways in the last days before the general elections on April 17, the district Congress committee and its members took up a novel way to reach out to the people of the city.

Led by district president B Ramanath Rai and Mangalore South MLA J R Lobo, party members visited most of the auto-rickshaw parking spots in Mangalore, reaching out to the rickshaw drivers and appealing for votes.

Plying around the city in an auto-rickshaw, Mr Rai and Mr Lobo spoke to auto-rickshaw drivers in parking spots in State Bank, Hampankatta, Falnir, Kodialbail, Lalbagh and several other areas to appeal for votes for the party in the coming elections.
