New Delhi: A proposed television advertisement featuring Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, issued to mark three years of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi on February 14, is stuck with officers in a fix over a reference in it to "seen and unseen forces".

In the video advertisement, the chief minister talks about works done by the AAP government in health, education and other sectors in the last three years and the hurdles it has faced since coming to power.

 

The AAP government completes three years in office on February 14.

Kejriwal, in video which has been pending for clearance, says, "Jab aap sacchai aur imaandari ke raaste par chalte hain, toh iss brahmaand ki drishya aur adrishya saari shaktiyan aapki madat karti hain.(When you walk on the path of truth and honesty, all seen and unseen forces of the universe help you).”

Sources said that the chief minister held a high-level meeting with Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash and other senior IAS officers and enquired about the status of the proposed advertisement which was to be aired from Monday.

Sources said that the heads of various departments have denied certification to the particular line in the advertisement, citing the Supreme Court guidelines as they were "unclear about which department would clear it".

 

As per the guidelines of the Supreme Court, all facts should be checked and cleared by the respective departments mentioned in the advertisement before being published or aired, officials said.

In Monday's meeting, the chief minister expressed displeasure over the attitude of officers in clearing the advertisement, sources said.
