An independent candidate contested the local body elections in a village called Veerapandi, near palladam, a town in Tamil Nadu. He had selected Jetix heros as his election symbol and started distributing jetix heros branded balloons and other toys..
It happened that he scored a resounding win in the election, beating leading political parties like the Ruling DMK, AIADMK and others.. But why did the public vote for him?
This is what they have to say :
"We have voted listening to leaders for a long time.. In this election, we listened to our kids who were cheering for this Jetix guy.."
