New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the publication of the photos of governors, chief ministers and the ministers of the department concerned in government advertisements.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi allowed the publication of photos while modifying their earlier order which said that that the government ads can feature pictures of only the Prime Minister, the President, and the Chief Justice of India.

Centre and the states of Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka had moved the court seeking the review of its earlier order, contending that it was contrary to the federal structure of the country.
