Over 300 voters from Rajulaguda, Mullagondi and Bhumajiguda hamlets in Chanduri gram panchayat in Utnoor mandal, on Thursday demanded a chance to exercise their franchise as they could not reach the polling station due to overflowing streams. They wanted the election to Chanduri gram panchayat to be held on July 23 in the first phase of the panchayat election scrapped.

About 50 tribal voters met the Adilabad District Panchayat Officer and Additional Election Authority, K. Pochaiah, and represented the matter.
