In Rajasthan, now Mandawar panchayat to vote

New Update

After Kachhbali and Barjal, Mandawar is the third panchayat in Rajsamand district which will go to polls on liquor ban issue on January 20, with 2715 voters are expected to exercise their franchise.

In March 2016, Kachhbali panchayat in Bhim tehsil had been the first one in the state to close down its liquor stall after 67% of voters voted in favour of the motion. However, at Barjal, in August 2017, the villagers failed to repeat Kachhbali victory and the motion for liquor ban in the panchayat failed by a margin of 129 votes. Taking a lesson from Barjal incident, now Mandawar residents are determined to get a clear majority for alcohol ban in the area.
