Stalin's 'bribe' to voters invites EC ire

M K StalinThe Election Commission has filed a criminal case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi's son M K Stalin after Stalin was shown on the television giving money to the voters during campaigning.

The Election Commission has also given a notice to Jayalalitha's party for the similar action of bribing the voters.

The DMK said that giving money to parents after roadside christening ceremonies is a common practice. To testify its complaint, the opposition AIADMK, televised it as an illegal means being adopted by the ruling DMK to woo voters in Thirumangalam.
