Villagers of Ajyagada Grampanchyat boycotted Panchyat election for 2nd timeDear Members,
When all Odisha is very much busy in casting their votes in ongoing panchyat election, then also a village is there, where people boycotted panchyat election for the second time. The village is Ajaygada, which is coming under Gumma Block of Gajapati Dist. Development of General infrastructure like road, water, health service, Education etc. has been a common demand for the villagers since a long back. People contesting in the elections always making promise before elections but they never fulfilled that after winning the election. It made them to boycott collectively the election. After the request from State Election Commission also, people boycotted the election.
I think casting vote is our right. We should vote. But when voting doesnot bring any benefit to you and elected persons forget their promise, then there is nothing wrong in boycotting election. Because Expressing your views freely is another right as per Democracy.
