Auto Drivers have become campaigners

Article
Visakhapatnam: The cities Auto Drivers have become campaigners of sorts for the various political parties in the fray. With over 50,000 autos flying within the city, commuters who use autos on a daily bases, are facing a campaign of a different kind.
Even if the choices and leanings of the drivers are different, they start off with one simple question. "Who do you think will win?" right after, they ask them, "Who are you going to vote for?" Most times people do answer their questions and get into a discussion on what they think should happen.

Taking advantage of this, the auto drivers take off into a campaign mode, talking about a political outfit they like or prefer and why.
“The reason is very simple. Autowallahs have a varied customer base. They have access to people of all classes and age groups, which helps them in analysing the political mood.
