According to sources in a Democracy, it holds true for elections too, where you can not only buy people what they like or eat, but you can also buy their vote just by appeasing them. Meanwhile in the recently concluded Assembly elections in Telangana, money seems to have played a major role, say political observers. They added like never before, money has been spent and distributed across Telangana. Furthermore speculations are rife that at least 10 constituencies have witnessed more Rs. 100 cr spent for election campaigning as well as distribution to voters. 



Reportedly there were also schemes like win a bike or smart phone to attract people to vote. Meanwhile on the other hand, scores of migrant laborers came back to their villages to earn the money distributed by political parties during electioneering and the election season is generally seen as a bonus hour for the poor and there were jokes doing rounds on social media that they shared saying once the election season is over, they would go back to being "poor".

Moreover from paying these people to attend political rallies to paying them to vote for a particular party, the role of money, especially the arrival of Rs 2000 currency note make a huge difference. Accordingly the penetration of bribe into our voting system has escalated, let us hope that people realize to be conscious and cast their vote honestly without the influence of money or other materialistic things.
