Hyderabad: Expressing displeasure at the apathy of authorities in removing flexies, banners and cutouts of political leaders displayed in public places without authorisation the High Court on Monday granted two days to TS and AP to file a status report explaining steps taken for their removal. A bench comprising CJ Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta and Justice P.V. Sanjay Kumar was dealing with a petition by Sudanagunta Murali Krishna of Prakasam district, moved in 2008.
The bench on December 26, 2014 directed that after the identification of illegal installations, authorities shall remove them immediately. When the petitioner’s counsel complained that the authorities failed to remove installations, the bench said, “If the governments are unable to initiate steps, the court will act.”
