Men drink beer on tractor while canvasing for prohibition candidate in India

This is the hilarious moment a group of men seen drinking atop a tractor, while seeking votes for a prohibition-favourable candidate during an election campaign in south India.

The incident took place in Parchur in Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh on March 24. The group is perched on the tractor engine, while the man leading them can be seen drinking beer from a bottle.

The men were part of a procession that was taken out to seek votes in support of candidate Daggubati Venkateswara Rao, who is contesting for the YSR Congress Party in the state assembly.

Ironically, YSR Congress Party has promised to implement prohibition, a popular demand with women voters, if voted to power.

India will vote in April to elect a new government at the centre.

At the same time, the state of Andhra Pradesh will also vote to replace its regional government whose term is ending shortly.
