  • Calcutta HC has asked Bengal govt to take down anti-CAA advertisements
  • Calcutta HC has directed for suspension of all such ads till the next plea is heard on January 9
  • The direction came after six pleas were filed against the advertisements

In what seems to be a setback for the West Bengal government, the Calcutta High Court on Monday directed all state-sponsored advertisements against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) to be removed from public platforms.
The court, in an interim direction, asked the Bengal government to suspend all such advertisements till the next plea is heard on January 9.
