Laddoo cakes, lotus-shaped barfis spotted ahead of Lok Sabha Election results 2019
New Delhi : Eleven kg motichoor laddoos, 16.5 kg cream, 16.5 kg sugar, 22 kg flour and a team of 12 cooks have been assigned to prepare 10 ‘laddoo cakes’ at a Bengali Pastry Shop on the order of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party unit.
“There is one 8 kg cake with sponge, cream and laddoos, and the rest nine cakes are 5 kg each. These are round cakes with laddoos at the centre. We have to deliver them by 2 pm Thursday,” said Umesh Aggarwal, who owns the pastry shop in Bengali Market.
A half kg sample was sent to Delhi BJP media co-incharge Neelkant Bakshi Tuesday and the shop received the order Wednesday evening. “The cake is priced at Rs 900-Rs 1,000 per kg,” said Aggarwal.
The BJP's headquarters are also prepped for the Lok Sabha Election 2019 results. A pandal that will function as studio space for news channels has been set up, and chai-paani arrangement for party workers and volunteers is being made. “We’ve got calls from workers, supporters, who want to bring traditional musical instruments to the office tomorrow. Jashn ka mahual hoga… but there is no need for premature celebrations at the headquarters; we are not getting laddoos made here,” said BJP leader Shyam Jaju.
BJP leader Praveen Shankar Kapoor, who was looking after the campaign of East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir, said he has ordered 50 kg of lotus-shaped barfi from a Chandni Chowk shop.
Going by the results shown in exit polls, the BJP is on cloud 9 and is all prepared for the grand celebrations on Thursday.
