Some Lok Sabha candidates in Haryana, which has the country's lowest sex ratio, are facing a strange demand from bachelor voters—“get us brides in return for our votes”.
“Bahu dilao, vote pao” (Get us a bride for our vote) is the demand of Avivahit Purush Sangthan (Unmarried Union).
The outfit was set up by Bibipoor village panchayat head Sunil Jaglan in February, to look into the issue of gender imbalance, caused by female foeticide.
Members of Avivahit Purush Sangthan are putting forward their demand to candidates of different political parties who are coming to their constituencies for campaigning.
But so far they have failed to get any positive response from the candidates.
