Tarechauri folk rally behind one of their own
Sep 13, 2017-Tarechauri village of Gaushala Municipality-11 in Mahottari wears a deserted look these days. Most of its inhabitants are busy campaigning for the upcoming local elections in neighbouring areas.
Chitra Bahadur is the first ever person from Tarechauri to run for public office, and he apparently commands 100 per cent support from the voters in his village. “We want him to win and work for the development of the area,” said Jyoti Lumre, a 25-year-old supporter of Chitra Bahadur.
He and his wife are regulars at Chitra Bahadur’s election rallies. Tarechauri lags far behind in terms of health service, education and employment. The villagers hope all that can be improved if one of their own were to be elected in the local body.
“We asked Chitra Bahadur to file his candidacy. We believe that to develop our village, we must have someone in public office whom we know closely,” said Khub Bahadur Ale, another villager.
There are about 200 voters in Tarechauri. Chitra Bahadur will need support of far more voters to win the election, and his fellow
villagers seem to be making sure of that.
