Congress workers today protested the Rajkot Municipal Corporation's inaction over illegal hoardings in the city.
City Congress's executive president Mahesh Rajput, opposition leader in the RMC Vashram Sagathiya and others staged a sit-in in front of commissioner B N Pani's office.
They were detained when they tried to enter the commissioner's office and released later.
They said in a statement that there were 275 illegal advertising boards or hoardings, but the RMC was not removing them or collecting penalty from the advertising agencies.
This illegal advertising was causing a major loss to the corporation, Congress leaders alleged.
