Remember Bhatta from 2011? When the twin village of Bhatta and Parsaul erupted in fury over forcible land acquisition by the then Mayawati government, shots were fired, farmers were killed and the bedrock for Uttar Pradesh politics was formed.
Eight years later, MyNation decided to revisit Bhatta 24 hours before the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections. The village that once saw political biggies likely Rahul Gandhi camp there is now forgotten. Though the land provided by the people of Bhatta helped to create one of the finest infrastructural projects - the Yamuna Expressway; has 'vikas' or development reached the villagers? And who do they want to vote for? The answer will shock you!
