Almost every section of the society, doctors, nurses, teachers, lady teachers, blind people, mid-wives, clerks, kissans, are on the roads in protest against government policies. They are crying for salaries, service conditions, pensions, justice, electricity, inflated bills of power, loadshedding, rising prices, law and order and you name anything.

In spite of all this, whenever an election is held, of local bodies or any vacant seat the ruling party wins. How is this possible? Can someone shed light on this ‘chhoo-manter’ business.
