Madras HC Allows Contempt Plea Against AIADMK Govt

The Madras High Court allowed activist ‘Traffic’ K R Ramaswamy to initiate contempt plea against the AIADMK government. Justice S Vaidyanathan gave the permission to Ramaswamy, allowing his urgent mention citing violation of court orders. The activist referred to several banners consisting of pictures of chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy and deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam being put up along the Marina during the first death anniversary of former chief minister Jayalalithaa. A court order had banned use of pictures of living persons in banners and hoardings. The ruling party is liable to be prosecuted under Contempt of Courts Act for wilful disobedience of court order, the activist said. Justice Vaidyanathan had on October 24 passed a blanket order banning use of pictures of living persons in digital banners and hoardings in an attempt to check the menace of illegal erecting of such banners.
