Liquor and chicken, to lure voters

Liquor and chicken, to lure voters

Those, who aspire to enter electoral politics, may find it useful as it is the advice of an experienced politician, who has contested many elections.

A simple lunch for the voters may not ensure their support in the polls. If one wants a sure commitment from the voters then one must serve liquor and chicken.

Infamous for his controversial remarks, often against his own government, Uttar Pradesh minister Om Prakash Rajbhar said that the poor voted for those, who gave them "liquor and chicken".

"Baati-chokha  kachha  vote, daaru murga pucca vote" (votes of the poor are unsure if one gives the voters only simple food....for sure vote give them liquor and chicken)," Rajbhar, who was president of the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), said while addressing party workers at Balrampur town on Sunday.

Condition of poor

The minister said this was why there was no change in the condition of the poor. "The politicians know they can secure the votes of the poor in this way and therefore they do not bother about them," he remarked.

This is not the first time that Rajbhar has courted controversy. The SBSP president had once threatened to send those parents to jail, who failed to send their children to school. He had also said that the BJP's one-month expenditure was equal to the amount spent by his community members on liquor in a single day.

Rajbhar has also embarrassed his own government by way of his remarks.
