Poll-O-Meter: How Cong got the hand

One may associate the ‘Hand’ symbol to the Congress.

But in the first general elections, the symbol was allotted to the All India Forward Bloc (Ruikar Group), a national party then.

The Congress got ‘Two bullocks with a yoke on’. It was only in the 1977 elections that the Congress got the ‘Hand’ symbol and that too after a split.

In 1962 polls, the symbol was allotted to the Akali Dal.
