Karachi—Supreme Court order to remove illegal hoardings and bill-boards from the city roads, has been flouted with impunity, as despite the passage of deadline of June 30, over 90 percent such bill boards and hoardings have remained in place.
On Monday night, a huge such hoarding collapsed on the road during first thundershower. Luckily no one was hurt.
But these bill boards, sprouting like mushrooms have been a hazard to public life and property.
Way back, during Musharraf days, all such bill boards and hoardings, beyond the specifications fixed by the authorities were ordered to be removed.
