The Election Commission of India has issued orders to stop political advertisements that violate the Model Code of Conduct from being broadcasted on TV. State Chief Electoral Officer Vikas Raj has written letters to all channels and social media platforms to enforce this order. The EC is particularly concerned about video advertisements created by Congress, BRS, and BJP that go against the election code and are regularly shown on TV.
The order highlights the misuse of political advertisements that have been approved by the State-Level Certification Committee for the Assembly elections. The Chief Electoral Officer’s office has canceled these advertisements as they are violating the Model Code of Conduct by being aired without adherence to the rules. The CEO has also sent letters to media organizations informing them about this decision and requesting them to stop airing the advertisements immediately.
In addition, the CEO has attached some videos and clips related to the mentioned announcements, most of which are from the Congress.
