Top political leaders guard farmland in Chikkamagaluru-1

Chikkamagaluru: Cutouts and life-size pictures of political leaders stand tall around elections but they are sent to scrap once the elections are over.

However, here in Chikkamagaluru, the cut outs of top leaders of various political parties have been put to good use.

The farmers have erected the cutouts of leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP National President Amit Shah and BJP State president BS Yeddyurappa in their farmlands as scarecrows.

A stroll in Lakkavalli "hobli" of the Tarikere taluk will show how the farmers have put cutouts to best use.

A lot of these cutouts were put up in the region during elections to lure voters.
