Value of vote

A candidate went to an old man to ask for his vote and handed him 1000 rupees and said, Babaji, vote for me this time.
oldman said:-
Son, I don’t want money, but if you want votes, buy a donkey.
The candidate wanted to vote, he went out to buy a donkey, but nowhere did he find a donkey worth less than 40,000, so he came back and said to Babaji:-
I have not found any donkey at reasonable price, donkey is at least 40000, so I can’t give you donkey, but I can give you 1000.
Babaji said:-
Mr. Chaudhry, don’t embarrass me any more. In your eyes, my price is less than a donkey. When a donkey is not sold for less than 40000, how can I sell it for 1000?
So vote wisely in this election.
Value yourself and your vote.
Don’t sell your conscience by offering a cup of tea just to shake hands, ask for well-being, vote is trust and there will definitely be a backlash about trust.

    If you want somebody to vote for you you can’t haggle about the price.
