PICS: Parties spying on opposition!

Parties campaign to win hearts, hire spies to keep watch on

Campaigning for the Lok Sabha polls is at its peak. Amidst campaigning one more activity becoming popular is the use of spies. Private detective agencies are having a boom time as they are being hired on a large scale by candidates and parties to keep a tab on their rivals.
