Hyderabad: EVDM under fire by politicos, finds huge public support
Slapping heavy fines for defacing city comes in for strong flak by leaders, parties
Hyderabad: If any government department's initiative affects the prospects of politicos, there is an immediate knee-jerk reaction to stop the initiative. The Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EVDM) came under fire from the public representatives and political parties for imposing hefty fines on individuals and parties defacing the city by pasting banners and posters across the city.
As a reprieve to those who have been fined, The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) decided to give another opportunity by forming a personal committee to decide the penal amounts. And the corporation went ahead and alleged that the director of EVDM, Viswajit Kampati was violating laws by slapping hefty fines on violators.
Seeing the outrage by the politicos, denizens took to social media in support of the EVDM department and director Viswajit Kampati. 'iSupportEVDMTeam' hashtag was seen in trending across Hyderabad twitter.
