Mumbai: FPJ Campaign Against Illegal Hoardings In City Amid Ghatkopar Tragedy |

Mumbai: The Free Press Journal has revived its campaign against illegal hoardings. Monday's hoarding tragedy in Ghatkopar (E), in which 16 innocent lives were lost, should serve as a wake up call.

Finally the BMC has woken up and issued notices to billboard contractors who have erected hoardings much bigger than the sanctioned size of 40'x40'. The FPJ demands that all these illegal hoardings be removed immediately in the interest of citizens' safety.

The tumbling down of a mammoth 120-foot hoarding also crumbled the citizens' trust in the system. After obtaining a permission for a 40ft billboard, how was a 120 ft billboard built in the area is the biggest question of the hour. FPJ questions who does the due diligence for such illegal tasks to be performed. At the Free Press Journal, we are livid and we are seeking answers.

FPJ appeals to Mumbaikars to join our campaign in order to pull down all the illegal hoardings across the city. If you spot any, send photos with location details to fpjreaderreporter@gmail.com or tag @fpjindia using #RemoveKillerHoardings on X.
