Masala dosa, free internet to woo new voters in Karnataka

Posted on : Saturday 12th of May 2018

Bengaluru: New voters are offered free masala dosa on the election day, thanks to innovative strategies adopted by political parties to attract more youth to the polling booths. Some voters are offered filter coffee and free internet recharge by various hotels and other organisations as the Karnataka legislative assembly elections got underway on Saturday.

This time, the state, otherwise lagging behind in poll percentage, is trying to bring maximum voters to the polling booths.

Nisarga hotel on Nrupathunga road is offering free dosas to the new voters and coffee for voters on presenting their identity card and ink mark. Owner Krishnaraj says that the idea was put forward by some young regular patrons.

Another hotel chain Vasudev Adiga here has also offered free coffee for the voters. A cyber cafe owner on Rajaji Road Second Stage has offered free internet for the voters and other discounts for new voters till the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) elections.

 

Many NGOs, business organisations and saloons in Bengaluru have also come up with similar offers to attract more voters to the polling booths. They aim at inculcating interest in politics among the youth amid attracting them to the polling booths.
