HC asks Mamata govt to suspend media campaigns against CAA
The Calcutta High Court on Monday passed an interim order directing the West Bengal government to suspend its media campaigns against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Hearing petitions that claimed that the taxpayers' money was being used to fund the campaign, a division bench of Chief Jusice T.B.N. Radhakrishan and Arijit Banerjee asked the Mamata Banerjee government to file a detailed reply to the claim.
The matter will again come up on January 9.
On pleas about the law and order disruption as also damage to railway property in the eastern state due to the recent protests against the legislation, the court asked the railways to furnish a detailed report.IANS
