Not happy with the way it looked, the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) made some changes in the design of its election symbol — a railway engine.
Following approval by the Election Commission on January 18, the MNS changed the design ahead of the civic polls.
Now the railway engine has been made more visible and the train will run from left to right instead of right to left.
MNS general secretary Shirish Sawant said the request was made to make the symbol more visible. “The old symbol was a little misleading and less visible. It looked like a road roller upon closer inspection,” said Sawant. “The new symbol is more visible and dynamic,” he added.
