In the tranquil village of Shantinagar elections are about to take place with the two main opponents being Amritlal and Jamunadas. Jamunadas is bent upon winning this election at any cost and accordingly he sends a group of social workers to mingle with the villagers, gain their sympathy and support, and hence elect him. The social workers, Vijay Sharma, Rekha, Raju Ustad, Bhalua, and Kalua arrive there and go to work immediately with the villagers. They take up an ambitious project of diverting water to this parched region, and do succeed.
