SC hears state govts' plea on ban of CM ads, seeks Centre's response

The Supreme Court on Monday (September 14th) heard the plea of state governments on the ban of politicians’ image in government ads. Justice Ranjan Gogoi and PC Ghose heard the review plea and also issued a notice to NGO Common Cause, who filed the original PIL.

SC has also asked Centre to respond on this matter and the next hearing date is October 13.

States such as Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Assam, Bihar and Karnataka highlighted that they enjoy autonomy in a federal structure of governance. They pointed out if SC can allow Prime Minister’s pictures, then CMs too have the right to get their photos published.

In May this year Supreme Court of India banned the use of images of any politicians except Prime Minister, President and Chief Justice of India in govt ads. The court allowed their images to be used in media but also said, “Even these three personalities will have to approve whether their photos will be there.”
