Bangalore: These days, money power stands out as the most important factor in the polls, which not only helps one in getting a ticket but also garnering votes. This is quite evident in upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections.

A news report says that approximately Rs 10 crore is being spent on a single candidate in Bangalore and there are chances of raising it further if a strong competitor emerges from the same constituency.
