Voters boycotted polls in booth number 359 of Muniya Kheda village in Firozabad district on Tuesday. The reason for this denial was the lack of development in the village in the past several years.

Voters claimed many leaders and government officials have paid them a visit but none of the promises was ever implemented on the ground.

In a total of 716 voters, only 8 were recorded in the polling booth till 9 am.

The Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) along with other officials have been convincing the voters to change their decision.

Uttar Pradesh is polling for 10 Lok Sabha seats in the third phase on April 23 and will continue to hold polls in the four remaining phases till May 19. The counting of votes will begin on May 23.
