    Why use public funds to remove posters. There is already supposed to be a ban on displaying posters.

    Why make the poor labourer suffer.If this practice was already banned why not FINE the Party/candidate for not following rules.

    The cash fine will help meet expenses and serve as loss to the candidate/party who has money to spend. It will save the tax payers and the Treasury.
