In the 1990s, a number of States amended panchayat laws. One could no longer run for office if one had more than two children. Human rights groups and women's organisations protested against the move at the time, warning that it would have bizarre consequences. Now, this has come true in Kondapur village of Mahbubnagar district. Here, a sarpanch seeking to evade this law, has kept his three children out of school a long time, says P. SAINATH.
