Maharajganj: The villagers of Kathehra in Maharajganj assembly constituency of the district boycotted the sixth phase of polling on Saturday to express anger over developmental issues.

No votes were casted from the village till 1100 hours.

The electorate of village said that they were disappointed with the government over no developmental work being done in their village.

The angry voters stated, “Since our votes do not benefit our own village, we have decided not to vote for any candidate in this assembly election. The leaders we elect pay no heed to our necessities. We are still living in the same condition since past many years. We have been left with no other options but to boycott polling.”

Voting for five constituencies of the district namely Pharenda, Nautanwa, Siswa, Paniyara and Maharajganj has been started and the results will be declared on March 11.
