Telangana: 15 video ads banned for flouting poll code

due to alleged violation of the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee (MCMC) rules and regulations.According  to, Telangana chief electoral officer (CEO) Vikas Raj said that the advertisements withdrawn pertained to content that was distorted and misused on various social media platforms by individuals and political parties.Of the 15 advertisements banned by the poll panel, six were from the Congress, five from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and four from the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS). The southern state is set to witness a triangular contest among these parties in the assembly elections scheduled for November 30.
The state-level MCMC issues certification for advertisements by political parties. “Since October 9, as many as 416 advertisements by various political parties have been certified,” Raj said.However, certification of 15 advertisements by the Congress, BJP and BRS have been withdrawn after it was found that these advertisements were being “morphed, distorted, misquoted etc and used beyond the purview of certification for which it was originally approved”, the senior poll officer said.“In addition to the above, it is also observed that political parties are running advertisements on YouTube and similar platforms without prior approval. This also requires approval from MCMC,” he added.
The cancelled BRS advertisements pertained to attacks on the opposition parties while promoting the schemes introduced by the K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) government, while the five BJP advertisements that have been withdrawn were related to strong comments against chief minister KCR, his family and accusation of non-implementation of various schemes by the BRS government.
The six Congress advertisements banned by the poll panel featured a pink ambassador car — election symbol of the BRS — and a lookalike of KCR. The advertisements, released by the Congress on November 7, showed people questioning the BRS leaders for not fulfilling their promises, chasing them away and puncturing the car and pink balloons.The legal cell of the BRS lodged a complaint with the ECI, alleging that the advertisement campaign by the Congress on electronic media was offensive and damaging the personal reputation of the chief minister.
