KARACHI: The Sindh Assembly on Monday approved a bill against wall chalking on public and private properties in the province, Express News reported.

The bill was approved by a unanimous vote.

According to the clauses of the bill, anyone found guilty of wall chalking will be jailed for six months and fined Rs5,000.

Earlier in April 2013, Sindh governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan had promulgated an ordinance to ban wall chalking.

As per the ordinance, people were not allowed to disfigure any wall, building or property with an intention to attract public attention by painting and wall chalking.

Karachiwala | 6 years ago | Reply | Recommend but still... no matter what- there has to be additional provinces. khairpur was separate state, infact very prosperous. And sindh was under bombay presidency. we need at least 20 different provinces in Pakistan on administrative basis.
Azam | 6 years ago | Reply | Recommend Surprising !! The Sindh Assembly getting the bill approved against wall chalking on public and private properties in the province by unanimous votes does not mean that the sindh rulers have succeeded in their objective. Implementation of this bill at all levels (which also includes the wall chalking conducted by the PPP workers itsef) is more important to curb this menace. It is for sure that the wall chalking by the party workers shall continue "As Before" and none of them will be booked. Unlike the ban on pillion riding in Sindh which has flexibity for exemption to certain categories, Definitely there may exist some undercover provision for exemption for the ruling party workers
