Post Hisar village vows to oppose candidates distributing liquor

Residents of Kaimri village in the district have vowed not to vote for a candidate who would distribute liquor to lure the electorate.
Though panchayat elections have been postponed, campaigning had not stopped, villagers said, adding it was a common practice for aspiring candidates to distribute liquor among the people to win them over.
Inder Singh, headmaster of Kaimri’s Government Higher Secondary School, told The Tribune: “I contacted prominent villagers and held a meeting to discuss the matter. They agreed villagers should be alert against allurements and decided to hold a panchayat.”
A meeting, he said, was held yesterday and attended by eight aspiring candidates. “All candidates were administered the oath they would not distribute liquor in the run-up to the elections. Villagers, too, decided they will not vote for a candidate who tries to canvass support by distributing liquor or any other kind of allurement.”
Hari Ram, one of the candidates for sarpanch, said the village had set an example by taking the decision against the distribution of liquor. “I will abide by the villagers’ decision,” he said.
Satya Naryana, the outgoing sarpanch, admitted the liquor menace had vitiated the atmosphere due to a fierce competition among candidates. “Since it’s a collective decision, the candidates cannot afford to go against it,” he said.
The school headmaster said taking cue from Kaimri, adjoining village Gangwa and other villages were mobilising people to take a similar decision.
