Controversial hoardings portraying Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as the next prime minister and a “Kalyug ka Avtaar” (reincarnation in Kali Yuga) were displaced from many public places in Agra after the municipal corporation noticed them, an official stated.
The hoardings put up by the Uttar Pradesh NavnirmanSena were placed under the “Yogi for PM” campaign, triggering a flutter in political circles.
As the hoardings dotted the city landscape, Agra Mayor Naveen Jain ordered their sudden removal. The civic authorities have also ordered action against the advertising agency that put up the billboards.
The hoardings carry a picture of Lord Ram and the monk-turned-politician thanking him for renaming of Faizabad district as Ayodhya.
Hoardings portraying Yogi Adityanath as the future prime minister and a man of action had current created controversy. These, too, were removed soon after they were put up.
Those billboards were also put up by the UP NavnirmanSena.
