Ulundurpet: Election season throws up all sorts of stories which leaves us wondering about the kind of candidates are in fray.

The latest example is a PMK candidate who was booked after he showered currency notes on an election official to protest, what he called, the "inaction" of authorities to check alleged distribution of cash to voters by rival parties in his constituency.

The action of K Balu, contesting the May 16 assembly election as the PMK nominee from Ulundurpet constituency, sparked protest by government officials and police said they have registered a case against the candidate on charges of abusing officials.

Balu had lodged a complaint with the election officials regarding alleged distribution of money by AIADMK and DMK activists in the high-profile constituency to lure voters and demanded action. DMDK-PWF-TMC Chief Ministerial candidate Vijayakant is among the contestants in Ulundurpet constituency.

Alleging that the officials had failed to take any action on his complaint and money was being distributed, an agitated Balu went to the office of the election officer along with his supporters. He showered the currency notes on the officer claiming they were distributed by DMK and AIADMK to the local people, as per PTI.

He also staged a protest along with his partymen.
