Will not tolerate violation of code of conduct: MC commissioner
MC commissioner MS Jaggi has passed directions to the MC advertisement department to act strictly against the candidates and others involved in violating the model code of conduct by installing illegal hoardings in the city.
He has directed the officials concerned to register an FIR against people indulging in reinstalling the removed hoardings.
He has also directed the officials to make the violators pay for the expenses incurred on removing the hoardings.
Jaggi said that even installing political hoardings on private buildings without the permission of the corporation was a violation of the code.
Moreover, in case the hoardings are installed on private buildings without the consent of the owner, an FIR would be registered against the guilty.
He said they would report illegal hoardings to the police daily and strict action would be taken against the violators.
