Bangalore: While various political parties are holding rallies to reach out to their voters, independent candidates in the elections fray are leaving no stone unturned to make their presence felt.

Despite being aware that there won’t be any instant change in the political set-up, the candidates are finding unique ways to send across their message to the voters in their constituencies, as per a newspaper report.

An IIM graduate, Sridhar Pabbisetty, is contesting from Jayanagar constituency. He campaigns on a bicycle and his pamphlets read that he has no corruption, bribery or criminal charges against them, the report states.

Another independent candidate is Rakshith who is a KLE college student and is contesting from Rajajinagar. While canvassing, he reportedly does not make any promises and uses social media network like Facebook to connect to them.
