That’s why it’s called Bisi

Tughlaqi is not a decree, the decision is taken after discussion

Which way the bicy will go, it is decided not in the manifesto of political parties but in the panchayat. The order of the Panchayat is not like a Tughlaqi decree, but all the people of the village take a squeeze by contemplating on the condition of the village and the villagers. This panchayat of purely Thakurs is based on ethnicity, but the scale changes when two candidates of their own caste are in the fray. Decisions are taken after examining many parameters like conduct, devotion to the area, sensitivity towards the villagers.

This is the opinion of the people of Bisi

The daily team reached to know the mood of Bisi in the assembly elections. There was a crowd of people in the Gram Panchayat office as soon as they entered the village. So we also stopped there. Inside, village head Sandeep Kumar was talking with the villagers. Here in the past, discussions were going on regarding the coming of former BSP MLA Dr. Dharampal Singh to the BJP. Shyam Singh said that the current MLA Ram Pratap Singh did a lot of work in five years. However, some people took great advantage in his name. Now BJP should give ticket to Dr. Dharampal or MLA Ram Pratap, we are with the party.

When asked if two Thakur candidates will fight from different parties, will Baisi’s vote be divided? On this Vishnu Sikarwar said that Baisi had seen both Dr. Dharampal and the current MLA Ram Pratap in the last 10 years. Now both are in the same party, so whoever gets the ticket will get the benefit. If the SP also fielded a Thakur candidate, it would be decided by looking at the candidate. But the vote of Bisi will not be divided. A little ahead of the panchayat office, there was a crowd of people at the chaupal. Political discussion was going on here too. Bahadur Singh Chouhan said that if the BJP fielded Dharampal Singh, he would benefit. The present MLA did the work but the people living with him spoiled his image.
