Wall chalking in RCB is a punishable offence


Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) under a special campaign has removed wall-chalking, banners and posters from the streets and main roads of the cantonment areas.

According to details, on the special directive of Rawalpindi Station Commander Brig Zahid Ahmed Rana and RCB cantonment executive officer (CEO), the administration had started the campaign to remove wall-chalking mainly from Saddar, Peshawar Road, Tench Bhatta, Naseerabad and other areas.

Special squads constituted in this regard removed wall-chalking from several roads.

The CEO urged the citizens to cooperate with the RCB staff to make the cantt areas neat and clean so that the residents could be provided a healthy and beautiful environment.

The practice of wall chalking should be avoided as it gives an ugly look to the roads and streets, he said and warned that now cases would also be registered against the violators of wall-chalking ban.

Meanwhile, the CEO also issued directives to carry out special raids to remove encroachments from different cantt areas.
