Associated Journals has to vacate its office: Delhi High Court
New Delhi, Feb 28 (HS): In a setback to Associated Journals Ltd. Delhi High division bench has ordered to vacate the office of National Herald newspaper. The publisher of the newspaper had petitioned the High Court for cancellation of earlier order passed by single bench of the same court that had ordered to vacate the building. The building of office is located in prime area of Delhi near ITO. In its prayer of the government had told the court that no press had been functioning in the premises for at least 10 years and it had been used only for commercial purposes, in violation of its lease agreement. The government, in October last year, cancelled the publisher''s 56-year-old lease for the building in Delhi''s ITO and asking it to vacate it. At the same time, on December 21, 2018, the Delhi High Court asked Associated Journals Limited to vacate the premises within two weeks, after which eviction proceedings would be initiated. In this connection, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had alleged that Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi - the Congress president - set up a company to buy debts worth Rs. 90 crore owed by Associated Journals, which publishes three newspapers including National Herald, founded by Jawaharlal Nehru - Rahul Gandhi''s great-grandfather - before he became India''s first prime minister. While in 2008, Associated Journals had shut down over its debts. The BJP alleges that the Gandhis used Congress party funds to pay off its debts even though the publisher has real estate assets worth thousands of crores. Hindusthan Samachar/Pramod/Ram \
