Rashtrapati Bhavan writes to Election Commission on use of President’s Photos for political purposes

The Secretary to the President, Smt. Omita Paul has written to Dr. Nasim Zaidi, Chief Election Commissioner of India an official letter regarding the use of the President’s photos for political purposes.


The letter reads:

“This has reference to a news item that appeared today in two national dailies captioned “Pranab pictures on Cong posters under EC scanner”.  The national dailies in which the item appeared are the Indian Express and Financial Express.

The news items also reported that the photo of the President in hoardings alongwith other leaders of a political party is being looked into by the Ludhiana Deputy Commissioner and the District Election Officer for any possible violation of any law.

The President is above party politics and neither his photo nor anything related to him in his capacity as the President can or should be used for any political purposes.  All political parties should desist from ever linking the President to any political party in any manner for political goals.

It is requested that necessary steps may be taken to ensure this neutrality of the Office of the President of India is not breached in any manner”.

This letter was issued by the President Office for the image published in News Portal.
