Bengal moves SC against ban on CM photos in ads


NEW DELHI: The West Bengal government on Monday moved the Supreme Court asking it to review its May 13 judgment that restricted use of photograph­s of political leaders except the President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of India in official media advertisem­ents. In its review petition, the Mamata Banerjee administra­tion said the SC order was “not in consonance with the country’s federal structure” and hence needs a relook. The Tamil Nadu government has already filed a similar petition. Asking the SC to modify its judgement, the state said photograph­s of CMs should be published to connect with the masses.
