Political Banners marring Public SignboardsWhen you look around while driving and at a traffic light looks for directions or miss a deviation, we curse the Government authorities for not have a proper display board. We are wrong, there are signboards but most have been borrowed by our own people to make their presence felt. There are flexi banners with over hundred pictures of 'people working hard for the locality', there are much bigger full length posters of our esteemed leaders placed strategically that we have to look up. Then there are banners tied around between poles and across the roads that often block the drivers view of signals or signboards. Some of them are even more innovative, why make a new pole or use threads to tie it, they just take the poster and stick it to a No Parking, No horn zone sign and go away. A few are even more cruel,the cut the top of saplings so that their banners are better seen.
So far the public and the signboards have not got a upper hand, hope it changes and the signboards can be allowed do what it's supposed to do.
