New Delhi, 19th June. Delhi Pradesh BJP has condemned the Delhi Government video advertisement campaign being run these days. Party has said that Hon’ble Supreme Court has recently banned the publication of photo of any political leader other than the Prime Minister. The intent of the Hon’ble Court was to stop glorification of individual political leaders at the cost of exchequer.
Delhi Government video advertisement campaign is a tacit violation of Hon’ble Supreme Court’s directive.
BJP National Secretary Sh. R.P. Singh and General Secretary MP Sh. Ramesh Bidhuri have said that even if the face of the Chief Minister might not be seen in this advertisement but the way his name has been repeatedly taken as a Messiah of poor is a gross violation of the spirit behind Hon’ble Court’s order.
In the advertisement got made by the Delhi Govt. being run these days on the TV channels the Chief Minister has been projected as a Messiah while the leaders of other political parties, administrative officials and the media have been projected as villains.
The Kejriwal Government has been in power for four months now and in this period it has not brought any new development scheme instead all its concentration is on individual glorification of the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for which the exchequer has been looted like never before.
BJP leaders have said that similarly in a radio advertisement we hear Delhi Government through Dy. Chief Minister talking about school admissions. We all know that new school sessions start in April and for 11th class in June. The present Delhi Government came to power in February and slept over the issue but now when people have started agitating the Delhi Government has brought this misleading advertisement.
On the matter of electricity and water supply the tall claims of Delhi Government are falling flat. The first thing that Kejriwal Government did was to fill the coffers of power discoms through the treasury sponsored subsidy easily forgetting its commitment for audit of power discoms accounts.
Similarly Newspaper advertisements issued by Delhi Government too appear glorifying the CM more than telling about any Government scheme. BJP condemns such advertisements which are derogatory towards the opposition and media. We call upon the Delhi Govt. to immediately withdraw this CM glorification campaign failing which BJP will not only oppose this advertisement but will consider the option of approaching the Hon’ble Supreme Court.
