The Tolls Of Delhi's Student Polls

As has become the norm, campaigning for university elections is not restricted to campuses alone. Throughout the city, multiple layers of political posters plaster walls hitherto marred only by the usual paan-and-paint combo, and pamphlets, defamatory and laudatory, lay strewn across streets and pavements. Not even the metro, Delhi's most recent piece of world-class infrastructure, seems to have been spared, with campaigners only revelling at having yet another segment of public property to smother with campaign material.
