In a complaint filed with the Election Commission, the Tripura unit of the BJP said that instead of removing the posters and hoardings in public places with pictures of PM Modi, the photos were tampered with. The BJP alleges that only the officials of the Election Commission misbehaved with the picture of the Prime Minister. That’s why strict action should be taken against the culprits. Taking cognizance, an election officer was suspended.
