Bhubaneswar:30/12/17;As part of its beautification drive, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation has decided to constitute a Special Enforcement Squad for removal of flags and hoardings from ‘No Hoarding Zones’.
The New Year 2018 would certainly make the Temple City more beautiful and less cluttered as the skyline would be free from unwanted hoardings and flags of various political parties.
Today Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) convened an important meeting of all political parties in order to have a consensus on effective implementation of hoarding regulations and policies. The meeting was held at BMC’s conference room.
Representatives of parties like Biju Janata Dal, Bharatiya Janata Party, Indian National Congress, Aam Admi Party and Communist Party of India were there along with Deputy Commissioner of Police and Additional District Magistrate, Bhubaneswar. Senior BMC officials also attended.
All political parties participated with great enthusiasm and promised that they would also follow the regulations strictly and never put hoardings in No Hoarding Zones.
It was also decided at the meeting that BMC would bring out a simple format where individual political parties can apply before hand for putting banners or hoardings in permitted areas.
All the participants agreed that the Heritage Zone shall be declared as No Hoarding Zone for keeping the heritage values of Bhubaneswar which will be helpful in tourism and promotion of culture.
