After the MC lifted their carts, a group of street vendors staged a protest on Overlock Road near Partap Chowk here on Monday.

Hanuman Maurya, a street vendor alleged, “A man, Harjeet Singh, who claimed to be associated with the Aam Aadmi Party, has been filing complaints to the civic body against us. Following his complaints, the MC removed our carts today. Thus, we staged the protest. Moreover, the MC has not even set up vending zones for us as per the rules.”
