New Delhi : A village with a population of over 10,000 has decided to boycott the Feb 7 assembly election in Delhi. The residents cited lack of basic amenities in their area as the reason behind the move.
"Leaders have been coming to us but we decided not to vote for any of them this time. It is high time now not to vote. They only give fake promises," said Panja Singh, 62, a resident of Jhangola village that falls under Narela assembly constituency in northwest Delhi.
Bharatiya Janata Party's Neeldaman Khatri won the 2013 assembly polls from the constituency.
