Along with this, the shop is also displaying 'Sandesh' of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and WB CM Mamata Banerjee, with carved images of the two leaders.

While speaking to ANI, the shop owner, Sudip Mullick said, "We always make these thematic sweets based on current trends, even during cricket or football World Cups.

Customers are liking the election-themed 'Sandesh' and buying as per preference," he added. A customer named Molly added, "The shop is known for such variety and this is going to attract a lot of eyeballs. I am sure that like me, several people will come to buy these sweets."
