A BJP leader in Rajasthan, who was aspiring for a party ticket in the upcoming assembly polls, faced embarrassment when a banner he put up featured a picture of Congress leader C P Joshi instead of the intended BJP leader with the same name. The banner, part of the party’s booth-level campaign, was displayed on an auto-rickshaw and quickly gathered attention from onlookers before being taken down.

The banner showcased photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP National President J P Nadda, and Rajasthan Assembly Speaker C P Joshi from the Congress party. Ramesh Kumar Koli, the BJP leader responsible for the banner, explained that he had mistakenly received banners featuring the wrong C P Joshi from the printing press. He was not present for two days and, upon his return, discovered the error and promptly had the banners removed.

Ramesh Kumar Koli is currently seeking a party ticket from the Reodar seat in Sirohi, which is currently represented by BJP’s Jagsi Ram. It is important to note that BJP’s C P Joshi, who became the state party chief in March, is the Member of Parliament for Chittorgarh, while Congress’ C P Joshi serves as the Nathdwara MLA and Assembly Speaker.

Mocking the BJP over the incident, local Congress leader Bhawani Singh Bhatana remarked that BJP’s C P Joshi has failed to establish his identity beyond his own area, and many party workers in the state are unfamiliar with him.
