Biharsharief: Taking a cue from Bollywood
blockbuster Sholay, a youth today enacted the role of `Viru`
by climbing atop a water tower and refusing to cast vote
unless his family agrees to arrange his quick marriage.
Shouting "Shadi Nahin, to Vote Nahin (no marriage, no
vote)," 28-year-old Jayesh Kumar of Kalyanbigha village
climbed atop the tower as voting began this morning.
After enacting the drama for more than an hour, he
stepped down, conceding to repeated requests of his neighbours
who assured him that they would convince his family members to
arrange his early marriage.
