EC removes Dikshit's photo from website

The State Election Commission on Tuesday removed the photograph of chief minister Sheila Dikshit from its website, following objections from the BJP.

According to Election Commissioner Rakesh Mehta, the photograph was removed on the complaint of Anil Soni, convener of BJP legal cell, who wrote to the EC on Monday.

Soni had said that the website was the only link to Delhi State Election Commission for queries, nomination forms and EC’s instructions.

“Dikshit’s photograph on the homepage is unfair and not in accordance with a level playing field. It is in violation of the model code of conduct,” said Soni in his complaint.

“The State Election Commission in Uttar Pradesh has the photo of the Election Commissioner and not the chief minister. Delhi should follow the same example,” Soni had said in the complaint.
