The High Court of Punjab and Haryana in CWP No. 7639 of 1995, directed the municipal authorities to remove all advertisement hoardings in a time bound manner, which the Amritsar Municipal Corporation failed to do.

Perusal of the video recording clearly shows that the aforesaid MLA has also threatened the SSP that if he continues to register cases against his supporters, he has to face dire consequences.
