Teen campaigns on his bike

2009-04-22 00:00

Komal Ramsunder woke up at the crack of dawn to decorate his bicycle to support Minority Front leader Amichand Rajbansi in Chatsworth yesterday.

Even though the 13-year-old is too young to vote, he made sure that he campaigned for his favourite politician by decorating his bicycle and cart with Minority Front posters.

Ramsunder, an Arena Park Secondary pupil, did the same thing for the 2004 elections and said that he would continue his wacky stunt until he was old enough to vote.

“He is my favourite politician because he does a lot for our community. I’m going to spend the whole day here encouraging others to vote for him,” he said.

He said that with the help of some friends, he took the posters from a streetlight pole and stuck them to his bicycle. The innovative youngster also got to meet Rajbansi when he cast his vote at Crestview Primary School.
