The City Municipal Council (CMC) has decided not to permit installation of statues on thoroughfares or at circles in the city. The decision was taken at the general body meeting of the CMC here on Thursday, chaired by its president Sunita Mallikarjun.

As soon as the meeting began, a few members said that Minister for Large and Medium Industries Murugesh Nirani had suggested installing a statue of Rani Kittur Chennamma at SBM Circle here. As the road was very narrow, installation of a statute would hinder traffic movement, they said.

A few others also said that the installation of statues would create law and order problems during processions taken out by different communities.

Incident

They cited the recent incident during a procession organised to mark the birth anniversary of Tipu Sultan.

It was also decided during the meeting not to permit display of banners and posters of political parties or private organisations as they would mar the beauty of the city and create disturbances.

Upset over the inordinate delay in resolving certain legal issues related to the construction of some buildings in the market area, the members said that the lawyer arguing the case for CMC had failed to convince the court about its stand and, therefore, he should be changed.
