Cash offered to voters in Tamil Nadu!!!

Lakshmi, the wife of an Inspector in Mullainagar in Madurai is relieved that polling passed off peacefully in the temple town, a departure from the usual violence and violations that it has witnessed over the years.

But the policeman's wife was still offered money by politicians in exchange for a vote. Lakshmi says she was offered upto Rs. 500 from a candidate during campaigning, which she refused to

also", she said.

Several voters, however, openly admit to receiving cash. More + video...
