EC asks parties not to use photos of defence personnel as propaganda
New Delhi, Mar 10 (HS): The Election Commission (EC) has issued advisory desisting political parties from using photos of defence personnel for propaganda or campaigning. It may be recalled that the directive has been issued after the Defence Ministry raised the matter with the election watchdog. The Defence Ministry had said that certain political parties are using the photos of defence personnel in their election campaign. In the advisory, the EC reiterated that armed forces are “apolitical and unbiased stakeholders in a modern democracy. It is, therefore, necessary that political leaders and parties exercise great caution while making any reference to the armed forces in their election campaigns”. Hindusthan Samachar/Radha/Ram\
