New Delhi, November 1

Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal on Friday asked the chief secretary to communicate to all head of departments to strictly comply with the Supreme Court order on government advertisements in the media. 

The direction came in the backdrop of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government setting aside around Rs 33.3 crore for publicising the odd-even road rationing scheme. 

“The Lt Governor asked the chief secretary (Vijay Kumar Dev) to communicate to all principal secretaries, secretaries and HODs for compliance of orders of the Supreme Court regarding release of advertisements in media by the government,” said a statement issued by the L-G office. 

It said the LG secretariat had written a letter to the chief secretary on September 29, 2016, regarding compliance of the apex court order dated May 13, 2015. — PTI
