BJP OBJECTS TO SONIA PICTURES IN GOVT. ADS.
I think BJP is absolutely right in objecting to the pictures of Mrs Sonia Gandhi appearing in the advertisements placed by the Government of India or its agencies It is a very wrong practice and should be avoided. This principle should extend to all political outfits in power..
First of all, Mrs Sonia Gandhi is only a manager of a political party She is holding no official postion within the present ruling administration. and can not speak on behalf of the administration one way or the other. If the present Congress does not have any photogenic faces in the party then they should not use Mrs Sonia Gandhi's face just becasue of its photogenic qualities,.as a promotor of products or services or projects. This practice goes back to pre 1947 era.and should be discarded now.
