A. ) Dear,

No. The people around your property area cannot stop the electricity department workers from removing the electricity poles as the electricity board itself ordered for removing the poles. Take the help of the police in handling the people who are obstructing the work. If the police don't help, approach the jurisdictional civil court and file a permanent injunction suit to restrict the people near by your area from obstructing the work. In the suit, make all the persons party who are obstructing the work and get restraining orders against them.
