Supreme Court notice over AAP Government advts

The Supreme Court on Monday (August 17) sought response from the Centre as to whether it has set up a three-member ombudsman to regulate advertisements given by various governments and authorities in pursuance of its decision on the issue. The apex court’s notice came on an application filed by NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government and AIADMK-run Tamil Nadu dispensation for “disobeying” apex court guidelines on public advertisements. In a landmark judgement, the apex court had in May barred publication of photos of leaders in government advertisements except those of the President, Prime Minister and the Chief Justice of India. Seeking Centre’s reply within four weeks, a bench of justices Ranjan Gogoi and N V Ramana said, “We will issue notice to Union of India seeking its response as to whether a three-member body has been constituted in pursuance to our orders or not. If not, then give reasons”.
