Karnataka state will go for elections on 5 May, 2013. There will be many state elections in India in this fiscal year 2013-14. Indian elections are known for festive look, full activities and heavy spending.
This Diwali may witness acute shortage of cashew kernel as some big states will go for polls during the Diwali consumption period!
However, the biggest boost may come from the nation-wide general elections. For the Indian cashew industry, what has happened during the Olympics may repeat again.
The February-March period is usually the worst period for cashew consumption. But this time, these months may become the canvassing months for the Indian Parliamentary Elections.
