Banners and cutouts on busy Avanashi Road and also in the Coimbatore Corporation limits are being removed from this morning, following the Madras High Court order yesterday.

Corporation Commissioner and Special Officer Dr K Vijayakarthikeyan asked officials to monitor the removal of banners, flex boards and cutouts, particularly those put up in connection with the MGR Centenary Celebrations to be held here on December 3, police said.

The workers removed hundreds of banners and supporting wood structures which were creating hardship to the motorists and pedestrians. It was just five days ago that software engineer Raghupathy lost his life after his motorcycle hit a protruded barricade, when he was negotiating a lorry from the opposite side.

Not only political banners, but even commercial ones and advertisements were also being removed.

The court directive was on the petition of DMK legislator N Karthick seeking removal of the structures after Raghupathy’s death.
