Political parties in Tamilnadu accuse the big parties of bribing voters for their votes. There are allegations that even small parties distributed money among voters according to their ability. All major parties/Fronts were confident of forming government even after the elections were held. But as the results were coming in, the losing parties started accusing winning party of large scale distribution of money among voters. If losing parties have not distributed money, how is it that the losing party in most of the constituencies polled nearly as much as winning party- the winning margin is very low. It may be that both winning and losing parties have given money.
The DMK and ADMK and some other parties have promised freebies in their election manifestos.They do so as they think that the voters want the freebies.
If democracy is to take roots, people should desist from taking money for votes and expecting freebies from government. More than the political parties, it is the people who should change.
