eci.gov.in
The Election Commission has asked political parties to advise their candidates and leaders to desist from displaying photographs of defence personnel in advertisements as part of their election campaign. 

The poll panel has written to the Presidents of all parties in this regard. In its letter, the Commission said, it has been brought to the notice that some parties are using the photographs of defence personnel as part of their political campaign.

The Commission cited its 2013 advisory in which it had said that the armed forces are apolitical and natural stakeholders in a modern democracy.

It said, it is necessary that parties and their leaders exercise great caution while making any reference to armed forces.
