Voters from two Kheda villages threaten to boycott Lok Sabha election

Kheda voters boycott

As voters across the country line up to cast their vote in the Lok Sabha Elections 2024, more than 400 voters from two villages in Kheda are planning to boycott the polling on May 7 in Gujarat over logistical difficulties they are facing.

Villagers from Venidas Na Muvada and Rayan Na Muvada villages plan to skip voting to mark their protest after their polling station was shifted from Khadgodhara village in Thasra taluka to Vadadala village in Balasinor taluka, 7 km away in MP.

The decision to relocate the polling station has been met with strong opposition from the affected voters, who argue that the new location is inconvenient and inaccessible. They further allege that the decision was taken without their consent or consultation.

In response to this grievance, the villagers have prepared a written notification, which will be submitted to Thasra Mamlatdar, provincial officer and Kheda district collector today.
