‘Maharaj’ SC’s judgement on Ads ‘unjust’: Sena


New Delhi: Reacting to the circular on advertisements issued by the Apex Court, where it has restricted the use of pictures of politicians in government advertisements, the Shiv Sena trained guns on the judiciary, terming the latest move as ‘unjust’.

Raising the issue that only the president, prime minister and the Chief Justice of India will appear on  the government ads, Sena has termed the move to be an insult to the democracy of the country where according to the constitution, simultaneously there can exist numerous political parties which will have number of political leaders.

In a sharp edit in the party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena pointed out that whenever the courts give any verdict, we say, “Yes, Maharaj! We accept it!” and nod our heads in agreement, taking care to ensure nobody commits a contempt of court.

“But in recent times, do the courts deliver judgements or just bypass the elected governments and are themselves directing the administration? Now, since it is the SC which has given this ruling, all of us have no option but to bow and nod ‘Yes, Maharaj!’ in agreement,” the Sena said.
