EC ban Congress ad on sub-quota for minorities

The Congress party in Uttar Pradesh had submitted an audio advertisement each on MNREGA and minorities sub-quota, together with a video advert highlighting the grant of sub-quota to minorities. The Congress’ bid to woo Muslims in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh suffered yet another setback with the Election Commission’s state-level Media Certification and Monitoring Committee rejecting its advertisement on sub-quota for minorities.

Sources say the Congress party had sought the Election Commission’s approval for its advertisement campaigns on minority sub-quota and MNREGA especially designed for Uttar Pradesh, but the same were referred to the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee (MCMC) empowered to take a decision on the matter.
