Karnataka elections 2013: Miners selling property to fund polls Zeenews Bureau

Bangalore: It might sound amusing, but the fact of the matter is the mining barons in Karnataka are cash-strapped and are selling off their residential and commercial complexes to raise money for next month’s assembly elections.

According to a news report, a mining baron and an election candidate is ready to sell off his two apartments.

Many political parties and candidates who were thinking of getting huge amounts of money support from some of the mining barons are disappointed, as the mine owners are cautious of the investigating agencies.
