Election Slogans When I was a young child

 Living in Rajpura Punjab in mid 1960 s

We children , around 6 years would collectively recite / campaign loudly a Song with names of 2 Parties i e. Congress and Jan Sangh , now BJP, , with our order of names of both Parties changeable acceding to our audience.
Our Election Song
-- Party ko vote doh

Beedi mein tambaku hai
---- Party Daku Hai
 Elections had always been an ageless Tamasha
 In mid 1960 s Congress' symbol was a pair of oxen - Doh Bailon ki jodi and Jan Sangh's Deepak- an earthen lamp
