The 'vote-buying' episodes of this election season have resurrected, just a day before the second phase of Lok Sabha elections on Thursday and this time all the way from Jammu and Kashmir, from a leader of Sajjad Lone's Jammu and Kashmir People's Conference (JKPC) party.
Latif Mir, the JKPC leader could be seen through the hidden camera, coaxing people and brazenly putting a price on their votes.
He said, "Whether you go to Paris, London, France, Germany or America, you must know, I am the real friend of people living in the valley. I have an attachment with this place. This border is mine...And sometimes I take off planes from here...Let others also speak and put forth their point of view."
"If you want money, I will give but if I tell you tomorrow that you paid me Rs. 300 for a vote, I promise even if someone doesn't vote, my relation with him will not end. If you call me in the night, I can come for you even at 1 in the night. I am not away from you. There is an official record that I have never locked my door since 1989. I will settle your issues," he added.
