Kochi: While hearing a petition seeking the removal of flagpoles in the roadsides, Kerala High Court on Monday has asked whether political parties are for the people or the parties. Justice Devan Ramachandran raised the question while considering a petition seeking the removal of illegal flagpoles on roadsides and sidewalks.
The court made the remark after the government sought two more months to initiate the steps to remove the flagpoles. The court allowed time and asked the government to submit remedial proposals within the stipulated time.
The court is hearing a petition filed by a company called Mannam Sugar Mill seeking police protection to remove the flagpoles of political parties at the entrance of Mannam Ayurveda Co-operative Medical College in Pandalam. The court will consider the petition on March 28.
