Billboard business by ruling party goons
Nowadays billboard business has become very lucrative means for the ruling party men to earn money. Earlier we saw that steps were taken by the CCC to demolish the billboards from the main area of Chittagong city. But again the beauty of the city got shadowed by the mushrooming illegal billboards. These precariously built billboards claimed some precious lives recently when those collapsed upon the passers-by.
What is most disturbing and disgusting is the reinstallation of these billboards even after their demolition following the public and media uproar over it. Newspapers reported that this is the easiest business run by the ruling party men by intimidating and bullying the business community. They have been earning a huge amount of money by investing nothing.
We hope the demolition process will go on and the authorities will not give in to any kind of pressure.
