According to first unofficial average of 40-42 per cent voting on Thursday was observed in Jamnagar.
In one of the interesting news, around 1,600 voters in Dhichada village on the outskirts of Jamnagar boycotted elections to protest their long pending demand of construction of an approach road from highway to the village.
Vice sarpanch Arvind Mathhad said despite repeated representations to political leaders and senior government officials, the village is being neglected. People in surrounding Air Force area, Jamnagar and air port have modern roads but authorities are intentionally ignoring the village.
SS Yadav, a villager, said people in the hamlet unanimously decided last night to boycott polls with a slogan "Road nahi to vote nahi".
Jamnagar District collector VP Patel confirmed that the villagers didn't vote.
