Poster menace: Drive against hoardings, posters on walls should be welcomed for clean & green Okhla
As unauthorised advertisements and posters pasted on the walls affect the beauty of Okhla, it is time said residents, that crackdown against hoardings and posters on walls should be encouraged for clean and green Okhla.
Besides illegal vehicle parking, mushrooming workshops and encroachment, Jamia Nagar faces poster menace as the walls in the locality are plastered with advertisements giving the area a dirty look.
The situation is such that every open public corner is overcrowded with posters of some coaching institutes, local leaders and other business houses who just for running their trade don’t even think twice to dirty the walls and look of the locality, said a resident on the condition of anonymity.
A walk through from Batla House to Kalindi Kunj, Zakir Nagar and Shaheen Bagh tells the story of poster and hoarding menace in the locality.
A resident who requested not to be quoted said it should be discouraged as outsiders get a strange feeling of a disorganised locality. You just step out of Jamia Nagar and you won’t find such mad rush for posters and hoardings in Sarita Vihar, New Friends’ Colony and other areas of Delhi, he said, adding that a campaign should be launched by residents against poster menace and authorities asked to dismantle them as soon as possible giving a clean look of Jamia Nagar.
