Via Imgur

 A user NomadSunil from Reddit posted this. And it went viral with many news sites and social media picking up the story. But it turned out to be some old photos of cash distribution by a bank with the MLAs as guests.

But The New Indian Express says they were old photos. 

"Interestingly, there were a number of photos including that of a Congress MLA. When contacted, bank president Byalahalli Govinda Gowda told Express that the photos had been taken on Saturday at Bangarpet. The bank, with an intention to help SHGs, lends at public programmes conducted in open places. Money is also handed over to women at their doorsteps, he said. Govinda said the the photos were posted to defame the bank and the politicians."
