Centre seeks SC permit to allow CM photos in ads, hearing postponed to Jan 12

Supreme Court banned politicians to publish their pictures in government official ads and only allowed President, Chief Justice of India and Prime Minister to do so. The matter has been in court for the past few months, and states like West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, and New Delhi have been pushing for a lift in the ban.

Centre has made an appeal in the Supreme Court to allow photographs of Chief Ministers and Governors including PM, President and Chief Justice of India in government ads. The next hearing date is January 12, 2016.

According to media reports, centre argued that in order to have an informed citizenry and let them know about government schemes, CM and Governor photos along with PM and President are required.

Media reports suggest that in its review petition, centre said that “impugned judgement amounts to arbitrary distinctions between different constitutional posts and there is no rational basis for permitting photographs of the President of India, but not those of governors.”

Centre was also quoted saying, “Further, the embargo on photographs of chief ministers of the states is also violative of the federal character of the polity which is a basic feature of the Constitution of India.”
