It looks like the other name for politics is money. And this is not just for the politicians but also for all those who are linked with it. The latest to join this happen to be the mobile networks who had a field day, thanks to the forthcoming elections.
It is heard that a major revenue to the tunes of some crores have been earned by them due to the SMS campaign that many political leaders undertook. Reports say that the same database was being given during the starting days at a whopping Rs50-60 lakhs.
As time passed by, the prices got down and now it is heard that the databases are being given away for Rs 2-3 lakhs. While the mobile folks made money, the poor customers had no choice but to get wishes from Chandrababu naidu, local MLAs, Y S R and others.
