With less than a month to go for the Rajasthan assembly elections, the demand for campaign materials is soaring high across the state as political parties try to outdo each other in the public's eye.

Political parties are ordering personalized election promotional cutouts, hoardings, banners, stickers and many other campaign materials.

Other than the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), many other political parties such as the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are also ordering such promotional materials.

Banners made of cloth, as well as paper, are being ordered in bulk, while statues of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, Congress leaders Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot are also in high demand.

A number of shopkeepers are complaining that due to the Goods and Services Tax, there is some downtrend in the market but they are hoping sales will escalate as the election date inches closer.

The assembly elections will take place in a single phase for all 200 seats on December 7. The counting of votes will take place on December 11.
