Photos of political rulers on Ambulances
ActIT Jammu, ASP.net Projects, Java, Vb.net, C# Training Jammu
Dear Editor,

It refers to on-going ‘war’ between Punjab government and Congress workers, where the latter are agitating for pasting the photographs of the Prime Minister on Ambulances presently carrying photos of the State Chief Minister. Whole system of photo-publicity of political rulers at government-expense and on public-resources is wrong and should be abolished both at central and the State level.

Even Dr Manmohansingh himself after taking oath as PM for the first time, had desired that his photos should not be put on government-advertisements. But his ideal was somehow ignored by the authorities. Huge public-money is wasted on photo-publicity of political rulers and their deceased mentors by ministries, departments and public-sector-undertakings of Union and the Sate Governments. Institutions like Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) should take note of the misuse of public-money by political rulers. I recall Union Minister Subodhkant Sahai having once got published big advertisements with his photo acquiring major portion of the complete advertisement to ‘welcome’ ministers from States coming to Delhi to attend a conference organised by his ministry. Was it at all necessary? Chief Ministers of various States race to heavily spend on multi-page advertisements in all newspapers, including national dailies just to glorify themselves. Even TV-channels are misused by various governments through long documentary-type poll-eve advertisements before code-conduct being enforced.

—Madhu Agrawal,

Delhi.
