Tamil Nadu streets are submerged in the election fever.

During any poll season, the skyline in the state remains cluttered with larger-than-life cut-outs of political leaders.

However, this time, the giant cut-outs of the political leaders, hallmark of the state during assembly polls have been replaced with Light Emitting Diode (LED) cut-outs.

Several public meeting venues are seen lit up with LED cut-outs of political leaders.

Many political parties have gone the LED way.

As compared to the LED cut out, the old styled cut-outs consume a lot of time and money, says stage decorator G Vivekananda of Velachery who trades LED illuminated cut-outs of political leaders.

For many artists preparing cardboard cut-outs of politicians was the major source of income, says stage decorator, Yogam Ravi of Ashok Nagar.
