Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken today opposed the AAP’s plea in the Delhi High Court against a Centre-appointed panel’s report recommending that the ruling party be made to pay an amount of Rs 97 crore that the Delhi government had spent on advertisements.

The Congress leader questioned the maintainability of the petition saying the Supreme Court had said anyone aggrieved with the actions of the committee, formed in compliance with its direction, may approach the apex court directly.

The submission was made before Justice Vibhu Bakhru in an affidavit filed by Maken, who was asked to respond to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) plea against the report of the three-member committee, set up to regulate government advertising.

The leader, in his affidavit filed through advocate Aman Panwar, has also said that the party has approached the court with “unclean hands and the petition is liable to be dismissed with exemplary costs”.

The court has now listed the matter for further hearing on March 20 next year.
