Fed up with politicians, villagers in India elect beggar as chief!!!

Fed up with tall promises made by political parties and local leaders, residents of Sahawar Shah village have made an unusual choice by electing a beggar as their village head.

A total of eight candidates were in the fray but villagers chose 70-year-old Narayan Nat, who has been making both end meet by begging for the past 40 years, locals said.

Nat said he never dreamt of this but the villagers exuded confidence in him. More...
