The residents of a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar district have threatened to boycott the upcoming Lok Sabha election over the authorities not paying heed to their demand to construct a bridge over the Solani river.

The decision was taken at a panchayat meeting at Yogender Nagar village.

Pratap Singh, a villager, said since the village is located near the river, residents faced problems in getting across.

These problems were aggravated during the monsoon season, he added. PTI
