Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das faced protests from locals in the Sukurhuttu village on Sunday in the assembly seat of Kanke while doing the campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections 2019.

The villagers were upset over the lack of good roads and sewage and chanted slogans when his convoy arrived.

Protesting against the lack of basic facilities and making clear that unless the demands for roads and sewage wer fulfilled they would not elect the BJPs candidate, they shouted   "No roads, no votes" and also "Go back" as he and his convoy passed. 

A woman also confronted him and spoke to him about the difficulties she faced owing to the lack of basic necessities.

As per locals, the village has poor roads and sewages since the last 30 years. The sewage condition is so bad that the main road is covered with the water from the sewage.

Watch the video above where the locals protest with "Go back", and "No road, no vote" slogans

The UPA is predicted to perform well in Jharkhand, as per the National Approval Ratings survey conducted by Republic TV and  C Voter for April.

As per the survey, the BJP is likely to come down from its remarkable performance in the 2014 polls when it had won 12 of the 14 seats in the mineral-rich state.

The BJP-led state government led by Raghubar Das is facing anti-incumbency in the state. The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, along with the Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Left Front and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) comprise the grand alliance in the state.

The numbers show that UPA is projected to win 9 seats while the NDA is projected to be reduced to just 5. However, in terms of vote share, the NDA is projected to be neck-and-neck with the UPA, at 42.8% versus 45.7% respectively.
