AAP ignores SC's decision on rolling out hoardings

Arvind Kejriwal, chief of Aam Aadmi Party, is always surrounded with controversy, and lately he is under scanner for the Party’s new TVC.

While the opposition is saying they will go to the court against this TVC, the Aam Aadmi Party has just rolled out hoardings of their Chief Minister in a recent ad. The hoarding was spotted in New Delhi at the exit of ITO metro station gate number four. Last month, Supreme Court clearly pointed out there shouldn’t be any image of politician in their advertisement except the Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India and President.

The court highlighted that publishing of photographs of any personalities (other than the above-mentioned) has the potential to create a personality cult. That is why it should not be permitted. It led SC to exempt photos of deceased leaders from its new rules.

The hoarding of Aam Aadmi Party comes just before the budget session and the ad says “Congratulations to Delhi students, Kejriwal government will take guarantee for the amount of ten lakh rupees for their higher educations.”

All this praise for students coming in the form of an ad is because AAP government is all set to give maximum share to education in their first budget. According to media reports AAP is likely to set up 500 new schools with special focus on secondary and senior institutions with 20 new colleges and a loan up to Rs 10 lakhs.

While other governments, such as Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, are taking legal course to solve the matter, AAP seems to be in a hurry to promote itself.
