Thousands of residents of Tikkri, Sagoor, Dhuki and Rajot panchayats of Baijnath sub-division have threaten to boycott the forthcoming assembly elections in protest against the failure of the state government to repair a road leading to these villages, which is at present in a poor condition.

Agitated residents of these villages staged a dharna on link road and threatened that they would not allow the government and political parties to set up election booths in these villages and none of the villagers would be allowed to come to polling booths to cast their votes. Villagers demanded that a senior officer of the PWD should visit the site immediately and order repair of the road.
