All illegal hoardings in city to be brought down in a day: MCD

Last Updated: Wednesday, November 11, 2009 - 18:55

New Delhi: A senior BJP councillor on Wednesday alleged that a representative of a private firm approached her with a bribe offer for allowing it to put up unauthorised hoardings, after which the MCD said it will file an FIR and vowed to bring down all illegal signboards within a day.
The issue was raised by deputy chairman of standing
committee Rajni Abbi at a meeting of the panel. An enraged
Abbi said the man came to her house to make the offer and
urged the municipal commissioner to take strong action against
the agency concerned.

She also showed photographs of several unauthorised
hoardings and said the civic body was losing crores of rupees
due to these. Chairman of standing committee R K Singhal
directed the Commissioner to ensure that all illegal hoardings
in the city are brought down within "24 hours".
Mayor Kanwar Sain told reporters that he has received a
complaint from Abbi. "She said an advertiser named Sanjay
Gupta approached her and offered money so that she refrains
from raising issues related to illegal hoardings. After she
gives the complaint in writing, we will file an FIR," he said.
