Mumbai: The Bombay high court Friday issued notices to four political parties i.e. NCP, BJP, RPI and MNS, asking them to explain why their workers had put up illegal hoardings and banners on public roads.

The office bearers of these political parties last year filed undertakings in the HC assuring that their workers would not put up hoardings an-d banners on public ro-ads and places without requisite permission.

 

“We call upon the said political parties to disclose as to why a large number of hoardings have been displayed by their party workers,” the court said. The undertakings were part of a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by NGO Suswarajya Foundation raising the issue of large number of illegal hoardings by political parties.

The bench has posted the PIL for further hearing on December 7.
