KHARGHAR: Scores of il­le­gal hoard­ings of po­lit­i­cal par­ties have been put up in Kharghar in the wake of gram pan­chayat elec­tions that are sched­uled to be held in De­cem­ber.

Po­lit­i­cal par­ties have cho­sen to brazenly ig­nore the Bom­bay high court’s or­der which pre­vents them from do­ing so.

A num­ber of il­le­gal ban­ners and hoard­ings with pic­tures of party lead­ers have been put up at Shilp chowk, Ut­sav chowk, Hi­ranan­dani sky­walk, util­ity poles and on the cor­ner of trees along the roads, de­fac­ing the beauty of the node.

The anti - en­croach­ment depart­ment of City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion (Cidco), too. seems to have turned a blind eye to the unau­tho­rised hoard­ings that have been put up by po­lit­i­cal lead­ers at sev­eral spots.

Irked by the in­con­ve­nience caused, res­i­dents have de­manded that thee il­le­gal ad­ver­tise­ment and bill boards in­stalled by politi­cians be re­moved from the city.

Ac­cord­ing t o sources in Cidco’s anti- en­croach­ment depart­ment, ac­tion will soon be taken against such unau­tho­rised bill boards dot­ting the node.
