The bench had said it cannot “tolerate” public property being “blatantly” defaced.

It had also asked the candidates, who contested in the 2017 DUSU polls to evolve a mechanism for removing the existing defacements.

The court has argued that in order to avert future destruction of public properties, a public awareness campaign must be initiated by the Centre and the Delhi government. And asked them and the Delhi metro authorities to present the action plan for advertising the penal provisions for defacement of Public property by next hearing.

The observation and direction by the bench came during the hearing of a plea by advocate Prashant Manchanda, who has sought a complete ban on defacement of public properties by the DUSU poll candidates.

We strongly condemn misuse and defacement of public properties for personal advertisement and believe we all have the liability to keep them clean and preserved.
