The Madras High Court has come down heavily on the Tamil Nadu government on the banner culture following the tragic death of Chennai techie Subhashree.
The Officials, who are sucking the blood of the people, are more loyal to a party than to the government, the bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and N Seshasayee observed Friday.
Saddened by the news of Subhashree, who died after a banner of AIADMK fell on her, the Madras High Court said that they are tired of passing multiple order against the illegal flex boards on Friday.
The High Court also said that there is zero respect for lives in this country. It's bureaucratic empathy.
Meanwhile, K Sathyan, AIADMK leader said: "The banner put up by party functionary for his family function has cost a life. Time and again, our leaders have sent out messages asking cadres not to put up banners that are against law."
Subhashree, 23, working in a software company was run over by a water tanker as she fell down on the road when an illegal life-size hoarding put up by a ruling AIADMK functionary fell on her on Thursday. The victim, Subashree was returning home from the office when the accident took place.
