Two car rallies, one linked to BJP and the other to Congress, took place across Britain on Sunday to influence voters back home in India, which is going to polls next month to put in place a new government at the Centre. While one rally was organised by Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP)-UK, the other was by Indian Overseas Congress (IOC)-UK.

Fortunately, the convoys of the opposing groups, plastered in banners and flags of their respective parties, did not bump into each other, though there was one near-miss.

Sudhakar Goud, spokesperson for IOC UK, said half an hour before the Congress convoy reached the Gandhi statue in London’s Tavistock Square, an IOC supporter, who had moved ahead, saw 10 cars plastered with BJP flags and banners leaving. The convoys otherwise took different routes.Click Here: Golf special
