Chennai: A division bench of the Madras High Court has ordered notice on a PIL petition praying for a directive to authorities concerned to remove a flagpole of a political party, which has been erected in front of a bus stop at Pulavari village in Salem district. A bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and P Rajamanickam, before which the petition came up, ordered notices to Salem Collector and five others, returnable by November 15. Advocate A Rajakumar said a large number of commuters and students in and around Pulavari were using the bus stop. Without permission, AIADMK cadre put up a party flagpole in front of the bus stop, which restricted movement of commuters.
