The Removal of pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan from the tiles laid in houses built under the PMAY was ordered by the Gwalior bench of the MP High Court on September 19. The authorities will have to work in compliance with the court order by December 20.
The court further directed the authorities that there should be no photos of leaders on any of the tiles in future also.
The centre had earlier told the court that tiles with photos would be removed. The state government in its reply on Tuesday said that an order had been issued by them for the removal of the photos. The state government also said that only the logo of the scheme would be used on the tiles hereafter, according to an agency.
A PIL was filed in July this year in accordance with the matter. It questioned as to why the photos were used.
