The Sangharsh Theatre Group on Sunday organised a street play ‘Evils of Elections’ to make voters aware of gifts and goodies offered by political parties in exchange for votes. The play was held at Sarabha Nagar Market and it threw light on distribution of liquor, money, parents manipulating their children to vote for their dear ones and also casting of votes in the name of religion. The play was written and directed by Imran Athar, and six-year-old boy Pratham also performed in the play.
