 The Congress on Friday wondered whether Reliance Industries had sought permission from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to use Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photograph to promote its telecom service.

“If permission was granted to Reliance, then we can see the prime minister promoting chocolates and other products,” AICC spokesperson Ajay Maken said when asked to comment on advertisements featuring Modi.

Maken said if the prime minister’s photograph has been used without permission, then the Prime Minister’s Office should take legal action.
