Dehradun, October 22
Jaywardhan Kandpal and Rajesh Pandey, two court commissioners deputed by the Nainital High Court, inspected the status of hoardings in the city today.
They along with a team of the Dehradun Municipal Corporation officials covered the area of Kishan Nagar Chowk, Ballupur, JMS Road, Saharnpur Road and the ISBT up to Clock Tower. On Sunday too, they had visited the entire stretch of Rajpur Road, Dila Ram Chowk, Jakhan up to Diversion Road. They also took a detour to Chakrata Road and some parts of Kishan Nagar Chowk.
The court commissioners were taking into account the hoardings installed over walls and roofs of the buildings or on roadsides.
The new company to which the hoarding advertising contract has been given this year is miffed at the DMC for not removing hoardings from rooftops of the buildings in the city. The interference and self interest of influential people and political heavy weights have prevented the DMC teams from removing hoardings from rooftops.
Following inspection by the court commissioners, the DMC did remove some hoardings but not the iron structure supporting them. They took note of the glitches and noted down the details of such hoardings. They also took account of the hoardings fixed on trees as well. The High Court would give a verdict on the issue on October 30.
