This penalty was imposed in response to the placement of an unauthorized banner outside the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) office on Queen’s Road in Bengaluru. DK Shivakumar, who also holds the position of Congress president in Karnataka, faced the fine as a consequence of this violation.

Furthermore, the Palike took additional measures by filing a formal police complaint in connection with the incident. The KPCC Backward Classes Cell had erected a banner on No. 94, Queen’s Road, commemorating the birth anniversaries of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and former Chief Minister Devaraj Urs.

However, BBMP officials from the East Zone intervened by removing the banner and subsequently launched a course of action against the KPCC Cell for their involvement in this matter.

Up until now, the approach had been centered around issuing notices and registering complaints against individuals who contravened the prohibition on banners. However, in this instance, a noteworthy departure was observed as the KPCC Cell faced direct penalties, alongside the submission of a formal complaint to the High Grounds Police.

This proactive stance was prompted by both a directive from Deputy Chief Minister and Bengaluru Development Minister DK Shivakumar and a ruling from the high court. The combined effect of these factors led to the decision to take stringent action, consistent with the mandate to eliminate all unauthorized banners and hold those responsible accountable.
