West Bengal: EC tells petrol pumps to remove hoardings with PM's pic

Mar 04, 2021 07:20 IST | By PTI

The Election Commission on Wednesday directed petrol pumps and other agencies to remove hoardings with photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the poll-bound West Bengal. The poll panel said that such hoardings and advertisements of govt schemes violate the model code of conduct. It has directed that such hoardings and advertisements should be brought down within 72 hours. The directive came hours after Trinamool complained to EC that the use of the PM's photo on advertisements and Covid vaccination certificates, which are being distributed by the union health ministry are violating the model code of conduct.

According to the official, the CEO has received over 1,000 similar complaints out of which 450 were found to be genuine.
