Delhi HC refuses to suspend Kejriwal ad

New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Monday refused to grant interim suspension of broadcast of advertisements allegedly glorifying Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party.

Justice V.P. Vaish also issued notice to the central government seeking its response on the plea and fixed the matter for further hearing on August 3.

The court was hearing a plea filed by NGO Nyayaa Path which sought direction to the Delhi government to immediately withdraw a TV advertisement and “restrain itself from such type of image building exercise of Arvind Kejriwal”.

The Kejriwal government on July 12 came out with an advertisement with a tagline “Woh pareshaan karte rahein, hum kaam karte rahein” (They kept on troubling us, but we continued working).
