'Cash for vote': Chidambaram's swipe at PM Modi

Feb 24, 2019 14:21 IST

With the government transferring the first instalment of Rs 2,000 to about one crore farmers over the next few days, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram termed it as a bribe for votes and said the greater shame is that the Election Commission is unable to stop it. Chidambaram in a series of tweets said: the BJP government will officially give a bribe of Rs 2000 per agricultural family to get their votes’. The former finance minister said the money will go to the cultivating farmer as well as the absentee landlord.
