Apex court stays Kejri’s dictatorial ‘Farman’


New Delhi: Rendering a blow to the Kejriwal government, Supreme Court on Thursday stayed a Delhi government circular which states that government will pursue the case against any person for making defamatory allegations against its employees.

A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra stayed the circular issued on May 6. According to the circular issued by the directorate of information and publicity department, if any officer associated with the Delhi government feels that the published or aired news item damages his or the government’s reputation, he should file a complaint with the principal secretary (home).
