Thiruvananthapuram: The Chief Election Commissioner has instructed to remove the picture of E Sreedharan from State Election Commission’s posters.

The move comes after Sreedharan joined BJP ahead of the Assembly election. In 2019 Lok Sabha election, Sreedharan was the icon of EC along with singer KS Chithra.



EC had decided to keep these icons for Assembly election too and both had agreed to this. Several posters with their pictures were released as part of Assembly election.

However, as Sreedharan joined BJP a few days ago, his neutral stand has been compromised and hence his picture should be removed from EC’s posters, Chief Election Commissioner instructed the returning officers through a letter.

EC explained that this was a normal procedure as Sreedharan joined a political party.
