Dinner sets, pressure cookers, digital clocks and other gifts to induce voters — it looks like a season of freebies months ahead of Assembly elections in Karnataka.

Some politicians were found to sponsor pilgrimage of their voters — the most preferred destinations being Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, Manjunatha Swami temple in Dharmasthala in Karnataka and Shirdi in Maharashtra.

A video of digital clocks bearing the photograph of a prominent politician in Bagalkote district went viral recently.
