Reacting to the boycott, Nashik District Magistrate Jalaj Sharma told media that the administration is assuring them that their problems will be solved and they should not go for a boycott.

"We have received information that they have declared to boycott (the voting). We are speaking to them and telling them that their problems will be solved, but they should not go for a boycott. There is a set of rules to handle any kind of corruption. There is a mechanism for complaint and redressal. Action will be taken against any such person. I request the representative of the village to come and meet us. We will try to solve the problem through talks," the DM said.
