Today, the Election Commission has issued a show cause notice to a member of the BJP’s National Election Committee for sharing an audio-visual advertisement on social media, titled as Main Bhi Chowkidar Hoon. He has shared the advertisement without obeying the direction of Election Body, reports an official.
He continued that Neeraj has been asked to submit a reply within 3-days.
The EC said that its MCMC (Media Certification and Monitoring Committee) had issued a certificate dated March 16 to BJP leader “in respect of the said advertisement subject to the exclusion of the clips depicting Army personnel”.
In February, the Election Body has ordered all political parties to keep the country’s defence personnel away from election campaigns and not to use their photos in any of the advertisements.
