SDMC Mayor removes poll posters from walls, warns of legal action
Expressing deep concern over the defacement of roads and flyovers, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) Mayor Kamaljeet Sehrawat removed the old posters and warned that legal action would be taken against offenders if such acts are repeated.
The results for the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) polls were also announced on Wednesday, capping weeks of campaigning. Typical student’s union election posters, bearing names of candidates in colourful and huge font-size against a white background, become a common sight every year during the poll season, with walls of many public buildings and flyovers splattered with them.
The posters pertaining to election campaign of the DUSU elections were found to be pasted in different parts of the national Capital, deteriorating the beauty of the city apart from violation of the ‘Delhi Defacement Act’,” the SDMC official said.
Sehrawat along with Chairman of education committee Sunil Sehdev, Central Zone Chairman Rajpal Singh and a number of councillors on Wednesday inspected after receiving complaints about the same and found a large number of such posters pasted over the walls and flyovers. They were joined by local people for removal of posters.
The Delhi Prevention of Defacement of Property Act, 2007, seeks to curb the menace of defacement of property that can invite imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or with a fine which may extend to Rs 50,000, or with both.
Issuing a stern warning, Sehrawat said, “There should be no such repetition. Legal action will be taken against persons found involved in such acts.”
The Congress-backed NSUI made a resounding comeback in the Delhi University, wresting the crucial posts of president and vice-president in the students’ union from the RSS-affiliated ABVP.
