"We have been doing this business for several decades. This year, kites with pictures of PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi and CM KCR are the most sold in the market. Also, as Chinese manja is banned, manja from Surat and Hyderabad is being sold," said Bhagwan Das, a kite seller.
"Most customers are asking for kites with photos of politicians, due to which we are running out of stock. Meanwhile, glass coated manja is not being sold and only thread manja is available in the market," said Mohammed Zakir, another kite seller.
