    This will eventually start happening all over the country if government tries to play with elections results too much.

    it seems you are interested in examples for post election violence. ;) this is not a good example to apply to the election as a whole.

    S.Rajagopal Friday, 18 March 2011 09:55 AM

    Same party supporters are protesting of illegal preferential votes. So imagine how long normal civilian will believe in this elections. Poor voting turnout is the answer.
