A women’s organization in Nagaland’s Phek district has set up check-gates to restrict the flow of liquor offered as an inducement to voters during the Assembly election campaign. The Chakhesang Mothers’ Association (CMA) has set up around 100 checkpoints in the Chakhesang and Pochury tribes of the district, which has five assembly constituencies with four seats in the Chakhesang area and some villages in the Meluri constituency of the Pochury tribe. The CMA’s main objective is to have a free and fair election without inducements, as the flow of liquor during elections is high and leads to physical fights, clashes, and conflicts. The CMA’s initiative is appreciated by the police, but they request that the enforcers report issues directly to them instead of taking the law into their hands.
