"I have called upon the mayor on Wednesday, but he didn't reply in a satisfactory manner, stating that he was busy," said Raj.

He added that he had called him on Thursday morning, but he again clarified. "If he will not provide details by Saturday morning, we will be forced to intensify agitation," added Raj.
