The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) has given permission to the Congress, TDP, YSR Congress and the Jai Samaikyandhra Party to put up banners in the city. It was accorded following a request made by M/s Prakash Arts, an advertising agency, to put up the boards in behalf of political parties. Action will be initiated against parties, if they come up with banners at places where they are not accorded permission.
