Parties Collecting Back Money From Voters
In a shocking incident, political parties that have spent money during the by-poll campaign are collecting it back. They are doing it rather forcibly in some constituencies of Ongole as they are disappointed on polling day.
During the campaign, each political party has distributed around 500 rupees per vote in some constituencies of Ongole. However, some daily wage workers and elders have given the poll date a miss and failed to cast their vote. Now that these political parties have got the list of persons who haven't voted on June 12th, they are going to their homes to forcibly collect the money distributed.
Voters are shocked with the kind of trends these parties are following now a day. While buying vote with 'note' is a big offence, threatening the voter for not casting their vote is another heinous crime. 'Dance of Democracy' is an old term and the latest trend can be described as 'Rape of Democracy'
