Use of PM”s photo in petrol pump hoardings violates poll code, should be removed: ECI official

Kolkata, Mar 3 (PTI) The Election Commission of India
(ECI) on Wednesday directed all petrol pump dealers and other
agencies to remove hoardings advertising central government
schemes that carry photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi
from the premises of the facilities within 72 hours, an
official said here.

The use of the prime minister”s photograph in such
hoardings violates the Model Code of Conduct (MCC), the
official of the West Bengal Chief Electoral Officer (CEO)
said.

Earlier in the day, a Trinamool Congress delegation
met ECI officials and alleged that the use of Modi”s
photographs in hoardings informing people of various central
schemes violates the poll code.

The Model Code of Conduct came into force after the
ECI announced poll dates for the state on February 26. PTI SCH
