Goa Congress MLA demands ban on Sunny Leone condom ads on buses

Andre Francis Silveira claims that the ads 'shame' the goan people.


A Goa legislator, Andre Francis Silveira, on Tuesday, 2 August, demanded a ban on condom advertisements, featuring actress Sunny Leone, on buses operated by the state transport corporation, saying it "shames us".

"These ads should not be displayed. It shames us," Congress MLA from St. Andre Francis Silveira said in the Goa legislative assembly.

Silveira first asked Speaker Pramod Sawant if the word condoms can be used in the state assembly, before going on to say: "What are these ads telling Goans. Students use buses... Goans use the bus."

The ads, featuring Leone, are displayed on the Kadamba transport buses as part of an advertising contract between the contraception company and the transport corporation.
