hear the news

The rumble of hookahs, Gulzar Chaupal and conversation in Haryanvi accent… The atmosphere of around 50 villages of Delhi is visible at this time. Of course, the election is of Municipal Corporation, but one-time feeling becomes of Panchayat elections.

The political board for the corporation elections is laid on the chaupal of the villages. Discussion is common here on the fate of those who reach the Civic Center. There is a reason for this too. In about 50 villages of Delhi, there are two to three candidates from each village for the corporation elections. In support of them, the people of the village have been divided in taking decisions in the same way as they used to be divided in the election of the Sarpanch (head) of their village panchayat.

Panchayat elections were last held in the capital in the year 1983, but in the MCD elections, due to the presence of many candidates from the same village, the Panchayat elections have become reminiscent. In more than 50 villages of the capital, Panchs have been divided into two-three groups. They have started exerting full force to make their respective candidates win. They are gathering in the chaupals in support of their candidate and trying to connect more and more villagers with them while humming hookah there.

On the other hand, the Panchs of 50 villages are engaged in arguing among themselves, terming each other’s candidate as weak and their candidate as strong. They reach their candidate’s office early in the morning and from there decide the strategy and travel to knock on the people of their influence in the area.

Apart from this, they also do padyatra with the candidate. However, some villagers of these villages are keeping themselves away from the tense atmosphere. They neither go to the office of the candidate of their choice nor leave home to seek votes for him. They are also refraining from telling about the candidate of their choice.
