Villagers boycott polls in Arunachal Pradesh
Itanagar: Voters of a polling station in Arunachal Pradesh damaged the lone suspension bridge linking the village posing problems of polling officials to reach the booth, IGP (Law and Order) Satyendra Garg informed.
Polling officials, however, managed to reach the booth under Panging Assembly segment in East Siang district but the turn-out of voters was zero, Garg said.
The 140 voters of Sisen boycotted the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls held simultaneously in the state today to express their ire against the state government`s alleged apathy in developing the remote village, official sources said.
Sitting Industry Minister Tapang Taloh who represents the seat is facing a triangular contest.
