He directed the officials of the city planning wing to remove all the flexes and hoardings in the city. The Commissioner asked the officials of Health, Town Planning, Engineering, Revenue and Administration departments to involve students in the programme and organise awareness rallies with placards in the areas, under the purview of their schools.
