Freebies during elections - should there be a complete ban or not?Reacting to a PIL filed in the Supreme court, the matter of giving freebies during elections has become a debatable aspect once again. The court has asked the central govt and state govt as to why a ban should not be imposed and sought suggestions. The freebies that started on a small scale in the past have now grown up to more big expectations as the parties and candidates need to spend huge money to be in the fray, otherwise, they are rejected by the voters for being more auster on the freebies. Freebies should be forthwith banned because it amounts to bribing the voter and votes go to a bribed party candidate.
