The villagers of Lian Bagoon situated in district Samba, today staged protest and warned government to boycott Panchayat elections. According to the villagers, the health center which was built three years ago for providing emergency service to the villagers has not yet made functional.
Now that health center is being utilised as a polling booth has stirred anger among the villagers.
The protesters said that they will boycott the present Panchayat elections and will not vote. Neither they will allow center to be set up as polling station nor they will participate in the election as a sign of protest against the administration.
They warned the government and gave a deadline of 15 days to resume the functioning of the health center. They asserted that if their demand is not fulfilled they will continue to protest in favour of their demand.
