Aggrieved residents, led by Local corporators Santosh Kasana and Pradeep Saxena called on newly elected MLA PC Sharma and apprised him of the incident. Later they along with MLA approached Kamla Nagar police station and lodged a complaint. Angry residents raised slogans demanding action against the people responsible for the vandalism.
