Meanwhile, Abhishek receives orders from BDO. BDO instructs Abhishek to put up a slogan on "Family Planning." The project comes under DM, so he is bounded to wrap up the work on time. He gets the job done within the given time limit. Abhishek goes for a round-up in the village with the Pradhan, Prahlad, and Vikas. One of the slogans was "Do bacche meethi Kheer, do se jyada bawaseer."
Everyone finds the slogan quite offensive. So, the pradhan instructs Abhishek to rub off the slogan. Later, something outward happens and Pradhan orders Abhishek to put the slogan back. His decision receives support from Prahlad and Vikas. The DM calls Abhishek and tells him that a man from a nearby village has burnt the Panchayat office after reading his slogan. He did it because he has six children. Abhishek narrates the whole incident to Pradhan and requests him to think about his decision, but Pradhan ignores his plea.
Episodes 5 to 8:
One night, Abhishek feels frustrated and consumes beer. That night he forgets to lock the office and as a result, the monitor from the office goes missing. The Pradhan holds Abhishek carelessly and asks him to look for another accommodation. Abhishek reaches the police station along with Prahlad to complain. The police officer comes for an investigation.
Somewhere, he feels Abhishek is the one who is behind the theft as he is in the need of money. An infuriated Abhishek vents out all his frustration. This makes the Pradhan believe that Abhishek is innocent. He organizes a party for Abhishek that night. The next morning, they find the monitor back with a note saying "Monitor was mistaken to be a TV."
One day, when Abhishek goes to get his photograph clicked for his exam. He gets into an argument with two village boys. Vikas advises Abhishek to involve Pradhan in the matter but he refuses. The next day, when he visits the photographer to get his photos, the photographer denies giving the photos. He tells the reason being his involvement in a tussle with the village boys. This compels Abhishek to involve Pradhan in the matter.

Meanwhile, Pradhan fixes his daughter's marriage, and the family puts forth a demand of Rs. 20 lakhs as dowry. He talks about this to Abhishek and gets impressed with his thinking about dowry. Now, Pradhanji begins to test Abhishek whether he would be able to crack the CAT exam or not.
On the day of the examination, Abhishek is very sad as his exam did not go well. Everyone tries to cheer him up. To this, a frustrated Abhishek vents out all his frustration on Vikas. But, he apologizes to Vikas later, as he realizes his mistake. A few days are left for Republic day when Manju Devi taunts Abhishek regarding his failure to crack the exam. In the answer to her taunts, Abhishek too taunts her. He says although she is the Sarpanch every year, his husband, Brij Bhushan Dubey hoists the flag. Manju Devi takes this taunt onto her ego and decides to learn National Anthem. However, she forgets the anthem on the day of flag hoisting.
