Centre to seek review of SC order on banning photos of leaders in government ads

The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that it would soon join hands with West Bengal, Karnataka, Assam and Tamil Nadu to seek review of its May 13 judgment banning photos of political leaders, except President, prime minister and Chief Justice of India, in government advertisements.
In an affidavit filed before the court denying any violation of the May 13 judgment, the information and broadcasting ministry said, "At the very outset, it is submitted that the Union of India is in the process of filing a petition seeking review of the Supreme Court's judgment in the PIL filed by NGO 'Centre for Public Interest Litigation'." 

The court had on September 14 entertained the review petitions filed by the four states and has posted them for hearing on Tuesday. The SC is also scheduled to hear on Tuesday a petition filed by the NGO accusing the TN and Delhi governments of having committed contempt of the May 13 judgment.
