Bengaluru: Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Chief Commissioner Tushar Girinath on Monday July 25 that all police stations will get orders to file a FIR against anyone who puts banners or flexes in a public place, and the FIR-filing process will begin in two days. The order was being prepared by the Palike authorities on the evening of Monday.
Speaking to mediapersons Girinath said the Revenue Inspectors and Zonal officers report regarding illegal flexes and banners from BBMP Marshals. He further said that the officials will take legal action against the sponsors and printers of the flexes and banners. “We are aware of the several flexes in front of Vidhana Soudha and other major junctions on political leaders’ birthday. The police will take action against them too,” he said.
Girinath also said that stray cattle will be seized and placed into BBMP custody immediately if the staff spots them wandering on main roads, taking into consideration the safety of commuters on city roads. “We have already warned cattle owners that if they allow their cattle to wander onto city roads, they will be penalized and may face legal action if an accident happens. To discuss what legal action should be done against such owners, we will also meet with officials,” he added.
