Gujarat polls: BJP stops giving out 'scary' Modi masks

The BJP's penchant for distributing masks of its candidates may not be carried into this year's Gujarat elections, with a report stating that the party has stopped the distribution of masks of Chief Minister Narendra Modi after some people who received them found them 'scary'.

Gujarat polls BJP stops giving out scary Modi masks

Are the masks too scary?

CNN-IBN reported that the masks, which was distributed widely during the 2007 polls and worn by many during poll campaigns, will not be distributed this time round after the latest batch was described by some as being 'scary'.

According to the report, while the masks given in 2007 were a good copy of the Chief Minister's face, the ones made this year by a Indian firm were less than satisfactory.

The Gujarat Chief Minister reportedly looked too old in them and even the spectacles used were very different from what Modi uses.

While BJP officials were unwilling to comment on the issue, the distribution of the masks was quickly halted in order to prevent any further embarrassment. And perhaps to prevent scaring off voters.
