Tumkur: Amid the intensifying campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections (General Elections 2024), a disturbing revelation has emerged in Tumkur. Authorities uncovered a clandestine operation aimed at influencing voters, seizing a cache of 73 cookers hidden in a warehouse in Kunigal.

What adds to the gravity of this discovery is the branding of these cookers. Adorning the boxes are portraits of prominent political figures, including Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister D.K. Shivakumar, along with wishes for a Happy New Year and Sankranti. This blatant attempt to sway voters through such means has raised eyebrows and drawn condemnation from various quarters.

Prompted by specific information received by the authorities, a raid was conducted on the warehouse where the cookers were being stockpiled. Upon investigation, all 73 cookers were seized, thwarting the attempt to distribute them among voters. Further scrutiny revealed that the warehouse belonged to Nagendra, a municipal councilor affiliated with the Congress party from Mallipallya in Kunigal town.

A case has been registered, and investigations are ongoing to uncover the full extent of this vote-buying scheme.
