Action for illegal use of billboards: DNCC mayor
Dhaka North City Corporation authorities will take legal action against those who will use illegal billboards and posters in their establishments, the city Mayor Anisul Haque said today.
He came up with the comment a day after the High Court asked the authorities concerned to explain whether they have taken any step for removing unauthorised billboards, banners, posters and other publicity materials from establishments in two Dhaka city corporations.
“I request you (people) to refrain from using any illegal billboard, banners, posters and other publicity materials,” Mayor Anisul said at a press conference held at DNCC building at Gulshan 2.
He also urged people to seek permission before setting up billboards and banners.
Since Anisul took charge of the DNCC in April last year, 20,000 billboards and 70,000 banners, posters and festoons were removed from the north city.
High officials of DNCC were also present at the press conference.
