Jabrouli village in Lucknow, which shot to global fame after former US president Bill Clinton’s visit in 2014, has come together to wish his wife Hillary  Clinton “all the best” in her campaign to become the next president of the United States of America. The villagers are now hoping that if Hillary becomes President, she will visit their village like her husband, and their village will also develop and they will get world-class facilities.

The villagers have started praying for Clinton’s victory and celebrations have also begun, as they were distributing ‘ladoos’ among each other saying “all the best” to the Democratic presidential candidate Clinton, who has been pitched against Republican nominee Donald Trump. Locals were seen standing in large numbers holding posters sporting her face and chanting her name.

Two years ago, in July 2014, when the former US president had visited Jabrauli village in Mohanlalganj, Clinton had initiated a health scheme there. Everyone in the village was ecstatic as an international leader chose Jabrauli. His visit gave Jabrauli a gleaming name across the globe as a ‘special’ village.

On Thursday, on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton formally accepted her party’s nomination for the president of the Unites States. She is first woman to be a major party’s presidential candidate. In her speech, she laid out her plans as president and attacked her opponent, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
