EC orders removal of PM's picture from website

The Election Commission on Wednesday directed Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to ensure that the photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu are removed from the website of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

In a letter to the cabinet secretary, the poll panel said the use of photos of the prime minister and the minister on the website (pmaymis.gov.in) was violative of the model code of conduct.

The EC said it was also in contravention of its instruction asking for withdrawal of all references to ministers, politicians and political parties available on central and state government websites.
