The villagers believe that a small patch of road, about 150 meters, could end their longstanding woes. "We have to carry patients and pregnant women till the main road, on a cot. We had complained to the current as well as previous MLA but to no avail. Everyone asks for our votes but no one does anything for our roads. They make promises at the time of elections only," said Kartar Singh, another local.
"We have decided to boycott elections until roads are built," he added.
Himachal Pradesh has 4 Lok Sabha constituencies that will go to polls on May 19 in the seventh and last phase of general elections. The counting of votes will take place on May 23
