  2. Candidates from all big parties in the Bangalore South constituency are school pass-outs with tens of crores of “self-made” wealth, as per their own affidavits submitted to the EC. I wonder how many non-graduates, non-politicians in the country can boast of such enormous wealth. One may then wonder what their business is. Sadly for me personally there does not seem to be any honest and viable candidate. I feel sad for Begur and Bangalore.
