Funds being misused to ‘glorify’ Kejriwal and AAP: Modi government to Delhi HC

3

The central government on Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that the Delhi government was misusing public funds to glorify Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath was also told by advocate Anil Soni that funds were being misused by the Aam Aadmi Party government despite a Supreme Court fiat against using public money to boost the image of politicians.

Soni told the court that the central government was in the process of constituting a committee.

The court now posted the matter for November 5.

The court was hearing a bunch of PILs including by Congress leader Ajay Maken saying the AAP government in Delhi was still issuing advertisements in violation of the Government Advertisement (Content Regulation) Guidelines of 2014.

The PILs sought directions to the Delhi government to immediately withdraw such advertisements and “restrain itself from such type of image building exercise of Arvind Kejriwal”.

Meanwhile, the advocate for NGO Nyayaa Path told the court that on radio and TV stations Kejriwal is heard blaming “poisonous leaders” and “dirty politics” for communal tensions and said only the ‘aam aadmi’ (common man) can save the country from such insidious agenda.

It said the sole purpose of the advertisement was to project himself and his party as the messiah of secularism.

  1. BJP is not able to fight against AAP on the ground on issues.
    So crying and complaining to Court against AAP.
    All the corruption, communalism, hate speeches, Dadri, farmers dying, black money under BJP Government are small issues that the court should ignore, because the biggest danger is AAP.
    Wow. BJP seems to be scared to death by AAP.

  2. bjp was asked to submit their report in 3 weeks by SUPREME Court as permissible guidelines for Advertising on different scores.This has not been forthcoming, as Centre realizes it had screwed itself into a corner. Whatever they define becomes commonly applicable for Centre & State Governments, as both perform similar functions, one on National level and other on State.

    Bjp for all its might has very inferior intelligence for doing Development,and have nothing to show for fulfilling benefits for the people, and talk only in the air.
