Politicians are known for making big promises during a campaign to win the hearts of electorates so they can vote for them. And after being elected into office, they pursue their personal interests without going back to fulfill those promises.

While campaigning for the position, Hernandez had promised to fix the local road, bring electricity and water to the community roughly inhabited by 500 people. Now, the village farmers are demanding the fulfillment of those promises.
This isn't the first attack from the farmers, as a group of people had invaded his office four months ago, ransacking everywhere. Hernández was reported to have gone to the central square to give a speech, telling Santa Rita villagers that he won't be intimidated while accusing their leaders of being responsible for the attack.
