National Herald publisher has suffered a setback after Delhi High Court upheld its order to evict the Herald house. National Herald is said to be ‘mouthpiece’ of the Congress party. It was founded by Jawaharlal Nehru.

Associated Journals Limited (AJL), publisher of National Herald, has been asked to vacate Herald house which is located in New Delhi’s ITO. The order has been given by a two-judge bench of High Court comprising of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao.

This order of court is on the plea of AJL which was asked to evict the house by one-judge bench. Actually, initially it was central government which called for ending 56-year-old lease by saying no printing was taking place in the building.

Actually, the judgement given by one judge bench in December said that National Herald’s 99 percent shares were transferred to Young India. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are shareholders in Young India.

The eviction process will take place under Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorized Occupants) Act, 1971.
