Was money given for votes elsewhere too?One particular rowdy, whose name is Mu Kaa Azagiri, and the totally discredited son of the late Chief Minister, Mr. M. Karunanidhi, started the dirtiest culture of bribing voters with money, some years ago. He did it in Madurai, where the economic differences are very huge. Today, he is not even a member of the DMK. He has been dismissed from the party.
Yet, the same DMK and the AIADMK, more so, the latter, have perfected the art of bribing voters. The DMK had done some really good things. They brought IT in the form of Tidel Park, one of India's largest IT parks. Today, it is a huge IT hub on the outskirts of Chennai. The entire OMR stretch was developed by them. They built superb bridges in Chennai. The DMK is also the sole catalyst of the 69% reservation in Tamil Nadu. The foresight of Dr. Kalaignar was very good. Today, the massive manpower base is supporting the growth of the State so well. All communities have a massive number of educated people. It was a good social engineering. The Mannargudi Mafia dominated AIADMK, is one of the worst parties of India. Easily the most corrupted too.
The AIADMK has openly paid Rs.2000 in most places, for a single vote. What is going on in other States? Is it so bad?
