The residents of a village in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district have threatened to boycott the upcoming Lok Sabha elections over the authorities not paying heed to their demand to construct a bridge over Solani river.
The decision was taken at a panchayat meeting in Yogender Nagar village.
A villager, Pratap Singh, said since the village is located near the river, residents face problems in getting across.
These problems are aggravated during the monsoon season, he added.
