Politics brings banner boom Lahore

The city is bedecked with banners and posters, mainly of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), indicating their rallies on Friday and Sunday but actually creating the atmosphere of electioneering without the active support of people.

In between the publicity material of both the rivals are the posters of singer Ibrarul Haq who is taking out a ‘Save Pakistan rally’ from Nasser Bagh on Thursday (today).

Portraits, posters and banners of PTI are dominated by those of the PML-N which carry the pictures of the entire family of the Sharif family — Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and Hamza Shahbaz. They are hung everywhere in the city allegedly more by the district government staff than the party workers. All pylons and lampposts on the entire canal roads from Jallo to Thoker Niaz Beg belong to the party which looks like monopolizing every important publicity point in Lahore thanks mainly to its government in Punjab.

Same is the situation at every important road in the city and the concentration of PML-N publicity material is in Bhati Chowk where it wants to culminate its rally on Friday.

Cricket-turned-politician Imran Khan’s publicity material is there but its placement and volume speaks lot of the party’s personal level efforts to let people know what it is going to do at Minar-i-Pakistan on Sunday.

The venue has nevertheless been taken charge of the PTI which has started placing chairs there ahead of the rally.

The publicity material of the rally of the singer looks out of context, strange and interesting as he has no apparent political motive. And strangely enough the people look wary of the publicity material and the outcome of the rallies wondering as to which relief they are going to give them in anyway.
