Voter ID Cards On Sale For Just Rs 100 In Karnataka Before Polls

Bribing citizens to vote for a particular candidate is old school. Enticing voters not to exercise their franchise is the new trend that is fast catching up in poll-bound Karnataka.

The seizure of 10,000 voter ID cards from an apartment at RR Nagar here on Tuesday afternoon seems to be an indication of this “new craft”.

This is how the racket works: candidates bribe registered voters, who they believe would not vote for them for ideological reasons, in exchange for their electors photo identity cards (EPIC).
