At a surveying stall in Nalini Raghunatha Rao Degree College, a Congress lobbyist was seen examining IDs before issuing chits and Rs 600 in real money to voters moving toward him for cash.
“I have two slips and two votes,” asked a man. “If it’s not too much trouble go and vote. At that point bring your significant other and I will give you cash for her vote too. You don’t stress,” answered the gathering laborer.
At the point when a lady voter griped about not accepting money, the dissident educated her that he had paid the cash to her significant other. “Your better half knows me from quite a while.”
