Kundapur, Feb 20: Shamihaklu and Golikadu gram voters boycotted the taluk and zilla panchayat elections held on Saturday February 20. The villagers belonging to scheduled castes and tribes, are up in arms against the administration and the government for depriving them of basic amenities like roads, electricity and safe drinking water.

They had warned few days back, that they will not participate in the elections and they have done so. The area is Naxal-affected. 

The officials tried to convince them to end the boycott and cast their votes, but the villagers stood firm on their demands. There was cent percent boycott, with all 170 voters staying away. The villagers demanded various amenities like drinking water, bus service, new electricity pole, bus stop and street lights. They also warned that if they demands were not met, they would boycott the next elections too.
