Unauthorised hoardings more in Mayor’s ward

Unauthorised hoardings more in Mayor’s ward
Deccan Herald

Mayor Mumtaz Begum was in for a spell of embarrassment on Monday when the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike council was informed that the number of unauthorised hoardings, posters and banners were relatively higher in the Shivajinagar area that Ms Begum represents (Ward 79) in the BMP council.

Updating the council on the monthly drive against these unauthorised exhibits, Joint Commissioner (East) Nagaraj noted that the monthly drive in Shivajinagar was not undertaken recently because it was a festive period and added that the drive would resume soon. The council meanwhile resolved to make it mandatory that advertisement hoardings shall be in Kannada, especially on the occasion of the Suvarna Karnataka year.

Corporator B M Mangala (BJP) noted that the highlight readings in the hoardings should be in Kannada and that English translations may follow it.
