PWD Kangra Division Executive Engineer Surinder Pal Jagota said the hoardings were removed in this town and its outskirts following the directions from the high court. He said hoardings were removed from the electric and telecom poles besides shops along the state highway.He said the NGOs should launch awareness campaign so that people did not indulge in violating the High Court direction and also putting the department with an additional burden of removing the hoardings.
