High Court bans laminated posters in Dhaka city polls
The court also asked the authorities concerned including the candidates to follow the order
The High Court today imposed a ban on printing and displaying laminated campaign posters for the upcoming elections in Dhaka North and South City Corporations.
A High Court division bench comprising Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order today.
The court also asked the authorities concerned including the candidates to follow the order.
Although the government promised a clean and green Dhaka city, councillor candidates have flooded their areas with plastic laminated posters.
Earlier, environmentalists and activists expressed their concerns on using polythene-laminated posters which will eventually pollute the environment of the city.
