The Election Commission of India ordered to ban NaMo TV a channel dedicated to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speeches and rallies telecast.

Delhi Chief Electoral Officer writes a letter to the ECI said the channel is “sponsored” by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“As NaMo TV/Content TV is sponsored by a political party, all recorded programs of political contents displayed on the channel/platform would be covered under the purview of the Commission’s Order,” the letter read.

“Further political publicity materials/contents, being displayed on electronic media without the requisite certification from the competent authority (Media Certification and Monitoring Committee in this case) should be removed immediately and any political content shall only be permitted strictly in accordance with the ECI instructions in this regard,” it added.
