A few weeks ago the video of Mrinal Hebbalkar, the son of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee’s women’s wing President Lakshmi Hebbalkar went viral in social media where he was seen distributing goodies to voters in Belgavi constituency. The video showed Mrinal handing out boxes of pressure cookers to women and asking them to vote for his mother. Lakshmi Hebbalkar is expected to be the Congress MLA candidate from Belgavi.

According to reports, Bangalore’s famous Chikpet wholesale market has seen the purchase of sarees worth about Rs 250 crores by political parties. Chikpet has about 300 wholesale saree shops and political parties are in a rush to avail discount deals for sarees. Representatives of the political leaders have paid money in advance for the large orders and as the model code of conduct is yet to be announced, parties are in a big rush to woo their voters with free goods and cash.
