PIL seeks ban on Sonia`s photos in Govt`s ads
Ahmedabad: A PIL has been filed in the Gujarat High Court seeking a prohibition order on Central government`s advertisements carrying photos of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who does not hold any constitutional position.
Dhaval Shah, a resident of the city through the PIL, has sought the court`s directions to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the Ministry of Statistics and Programme implementation, to stop publication and withdrawal of advertisements being published and telecast in the state ahead of the elections.
The said advertisements, showing Sonia`s photographs are titled as "Twenty Point Programme and Central Sector Projects Contributing to Gujarat`s Overall Development".
The petitioner has claimed that a president or chairman of any national/regional party be it Congress, BJP or any other political party has no constitutional position.
