Doc goes overboard in zeal to ask people to vote

By Y Maheswara Reddy

A private dentist in the town has without a doubt invited bother by means of hanging up a banner in front of his medical institution offering a rebate for sufferers most effective from a selected group in the event that they excercise their franchise in Bengaluru.

It is not clear if it is foolhardy or ignorance of the type code of behavior all over Lok Sabha elections, however Dr KG Nagaraj of a dental medical institution of JP Nagar, has no qualms in admitting that he has now not taken permission from the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which is obligatory for such an act. The writing on the banner is going like this… Celebrate the festival of elections by means of balloting on April 18, 2019. Washing keeps mouth clean your balloting keeps nation clean. Your unmarried vote makes the difference between good, bad & unpleasant. This is the time for balloting & now not pickinicking. Free session & 10% discount for Hindus balloting in Bengaluru.

Recently, the Karnataka High Court had banned the hanging up of banners and hoardings with out prior permission from the government concerned. “I have now not taken permission from the BBMP. I post the banner two weeks in the past. No BBMP earnings worker has objected to my hanging up this banner. Why will have to I would like BBMP’s permission to position up the banner which is aimed at creating awareness?” asks Dr Nagaraj.

BBMP Deputy Commissioner (South) Avinash Babu has, then again, made it clear that hanging up banners without a valid permission is prohibited. “It is not proper to position up such banners all over the elections. It is ok if the dentist puts up a banner to create awareness some of the citizens on the significance of exercising their franchise however it is unethical to provide rebate for a selected group,” Avinash Babu said. He said the BBMP employees would get all the way down to casting off the banner and cautioning the dentist.
