MYSORE: Activists of the All India Mahila Samskruthika Sanghatane (AIMSS) staged a protest in front of the Mysore City Corporation office on Wednesday against the menace of obscene posters in the city.

They said the corporation should take steps to prevent the menace. Display of such publicity material increased following liberalisation as the companies are giving obscene advertisements. Posters of adult movies are a major cause for concern.

The activists said the corporation should prohibit film posters that depict obscenity.

Further, it should take steps to get commercial hoardings which portray women in bad light removed.

They said advertisements promoting products such as liquor and other glamour products are in bad taste.
