CHITTAGONG, Jan 2: Billboards of different sizes, both legal and illegal, have been installed at the strategic points of the port city including road dividers and footpaths. It has not only been undermining the beauty of the city but also disrupting the normal movement of the pedestrians.
Still, the number of billboards is on increase gradually. Billboards used to be installed over footpaths and road dividers earlier. But vast billboards occupying big portions of roads are now being set up.
While the natural beauty of the port city has remarkably declined result of cutting bills and filling the rivers, installation of these advertisement boards in an unabated manner has added a new dimension in undermining the beauty of the city.
According to concerned sources, around 5,500 billboards of different sizes have been installed legally while more than one thousand boards of similar nature also exist in the different corners of the city in an illegal manner.
