The Supreme Court has banned construction of statues or any other structure at public places which obstructs traffic movement.
The apex court restrained all the state governments and union territories from granting permission for any structure at public places.

A SC bench comprising justices R M Lodha and S J Mukhopadhaya passed the order on Friday over an application filed against Kerala government's decision to permit installation of statue of a leader on a traffic island on the Kanyakumari National Highway.
"Until further orders, we direct that status quo be maintained where the statue is permitted to be installed," the bench said.
"Henceforth, the state (Kerala) government would not grant any permission for statue or construction of any structure at public places, roads or any places of public utility," it said.

The bench clarified that "this would not apply for installation of traffic utility structures like street lights etc."
"The above order shall also apply to all other states and Union Territories," the bench said.

Very good decision by the Supreme Court. But will this be enforced strictly? The Governments know how to circumvent even the Supreme Court Decisions. Let us watch how the directive of the highest judiciary is followed.
