that 3 people 2 men and 1 woman who were allegedly not villagers
in the area were mostly participating. The monitor also said that
the presence of the three was intimidating for villagers who did
not contribute but instead cheered them on.

Most participants were contributing meaningfully and seeking clarification
where they did not understand. Reports from the monitor in the district
indicate that people were not airing party views but were responding
to questions in a balanced manner and asking for clarification for
issues that were not clear for them.
