There are multiple ads running on TVs from AAP during the prime time and these are repated again and again said one of the senior congress leaders and complained against AAP.
Maken had alleged that the AAP government has increased its publicity budget by a whopping 2119 per cent by allotting Rs 526 crore as against Rs 23.7 crore in 2014. Maken’s lawyer Vikas Singh submitted before the Supreme Court on Monday that the AAP government, “in an aggressive political PR exercise”, was repeatedly airing politically-motivated advertisements for the promotion of the ruling party and its members. However, the Bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi refused to entertain
the plea saying “other efficacious remedies were at the disposal of the petitioner”. Maken then moved the Delhi High Court.
The Congress leader made the Centre the second respondent citing the reason that it was yet to constitute the three-member body to oversee the implementation of the guidelines. “The Delhi government is constantly violating guidelines
byrepeatedly airing politically motivated advertisements on TV, radio and newspapers for promoting the party in power. Therefore in absence of any redressal/compliance mechanism, the common man has become a mere spectator. Despite the guidelines, the Kejriwal government’s budget for publicity and advertisement has been increased by a whopping 2119 per cent on June 25, marking the figure at Rs 526 crore,” Maken’s petition said.
However Delhi HC said let the ADs stay. BUt have asked the details of the money spent on advertisements.
