    On her part, actress Mumtaz campaigned among the people at various junctions in Chennai contributing to the 'Vote for Taj' campaign. She told: "It is a matter of pride for us. We should ensure that we get Taj Mahal in the list." Meanwhile K.K. Sharma of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has described the campaign as the 'economic exploitation of the sentiments of the Indian people" .No two monuments are alike and they should not be compared, he feels. 'It is an injustice to the status and dignity of the Taj Mahal,' he told the press.
