High Court bans public meetings at Angamaly Junction
Thursday April 5 2007 11:25 IST
According to the petitioner Linu Varghese and others, almost on all days between 3.30 pm and 8 pm public meetings are organised by political parties at the junction in front of the shops, affecting ingress and egress.
Consequently, customers avoid petitioners’ shops and go to other shops where they can park their vehicles and shop. The meetings are held at peak hours of business and hence it affects the livelihood of the petitioners.
Moreover loud speakers are being used causing nuisance in the area and it is difficult to transact business during the time. All these are done irrespective of the fact that the municipal stadium is situated very close to the junction.
In spite of complaints regarding the nuisance, the authorities are not taking any action to avert the same.
