Police on Friday booked a DMK party cadre for not removing the graffiti from the compound walls here. Ever since the election date was announced, the Model Code of Conduct had been enforced across the district. Several monitoring teams are deployed to monitor the implementation of the MCC. Accordingly, all political parties were asked to remove poll graffiti and political labels in public places, and a grace period was also given. As the grace period for removal of political graffiti and hoardings had expired, appearance of the graffiti will be considered as lapse in duty on the part of officials, and the district administration would take the complaint seriously. Police sources the party had failed to remove graffiti painted last month on the outer surface of the compound walls of a government school.
