Gwalior, Sep 20: The Gwalior bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court ordered the removal of images of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan by December 20 from the tiles laid in houses built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).
A division bench of Justices Sanjay Yadav and Vivek Agrawal also directed the government that there should be no photos of leaders on any of the tiles.
Earlier, the central government had told the court that tiles with photos would be removed.
On Tuesday, the state government, in its reply, said that a notice had been issued for the removal of the photos. It also stated that only the logo of the PMAY scheme would be used on the tiles hereafter.
In July this year, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed questioning that why the picture were used.
