The Pune railway station has come under notice for its failure to remove posters featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi, even after the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) came into effect. The MCC, enforced by the Election Commission of India, was activated following the announcement of Lok Sabha election dates on March 16.

The station still displayed flex banners and posters promoting Union government schemes beyond the stipulated 48-hour period mandated by the MCC.

Despite station officials acknowledging the removal of some posters and selfie points bearing Modi’s photos, several promotional materials remained intact.

The report highlighted the station’s non-compliance with MCC regulations. The article emphasizes the importance of adhering to election guidelines and avoiding any semblance of political bias in public spaces, especially during the electoral process.

As the nation gears up for the upcoming elections, such incidents underscore the need for strict enforcement of electoral protocols to ensure a fair and transparent democratic process.

Recently, with the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the recent painting of private walls with political slogans and symbols by the BJP in Pune has come under observation. Municipal bodies, village councils, and other local authorities have been instructed to adhere strictly to the code of conduct for the upcoming elections. As a result, walls covered with political messages will be covered up across the city and district.

Furthermore, political advertisements and hoardings in public areas will be removed promptly. Private premises displaying unauthorized political symbols and slogans will also undergo removal within 24 hours.
