In an unfortunate incident, a Nagpur Metro pillar near The Pride Hotel on Wardha Road was vandalised with spray paint possibly on Wednesday night by miscreants. The incident was brought to fore by a youngster named Atharva Pradhan, after which quite a few social media pages dedicated to Nagpur shared the disturbing image and expressed disappointment.

For almost a decade, we as true Nagpurians have always thirsted for urbanisation and development in town. While some believed optimistically about the future, others cribbed pessimistically about the current day. The common phrases we have often come across are: Yaar, McD kab aayenga? Metro Rail ka kya scene hai? But after seeing this photo, we were filled with anger and at the same time pity as to how people can be so ignorant and destructive about their own hometown We fail to understand the logic behind such idiotic actions that too for an aspect that is about to change the face of the city. Today, we as an entire unit urge you all to kindly share this so that the guilty reads it and understands what a menace he or she is making in the city. At the same time, we request you all to keep a watch on such menace makers who consider destruction of public property as their entertainment. We sincerely wish to thank @__atharva__04 (Atharva Pradhan) for being a loyal citizen and sharing this image with us. More power to you, Sir ❤️ . . . . . #nagpur #nagpurdiaries #nagpurmetro #dailylife
RJ Saurabh from Red FM too shared a video expressing disappointment and called for the video to be circulated with #DimagSeyPaidal to shame the miscreants.
While the incident is really unfortunate, what comes as a silver lining is the fact that if there are people who vandalise public property like this, there are also people who not only feel sad about it but also believe in bringing a change themselves.
A good Samaritan named Aayush Nevatia reportedly woke up early and started cleaning the pillar. While Nation Next salutes people like Aayush and Atharva, it also demands strict action against the outlaws, who vandalise public property and bring shame to the city we all love - Nagpur!

While Nagpur was asleep last night, A hero woke up and rose for the city!! Seldom did we know that our initiative to highlight the metro pillar menace would grab such supportive attention. Moreover, what makes us feel proud is the rebel attitude of all the Youth in the city. We have stood up so well in opposition of such menace makers. @aayushnevatia your initiative and actions have inspired us to the next level as to how we should lead by example. Take a bow Sir More power to you and on behalf of Nagpur, we thank you with all our heart ❤️ . . . . . #nagpur #heroes #cleanup #nagpurmetro #powerofyouth
