Banners with portraits of Chief Minister M.K. Stalin and former Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi that were displayed at the main entrance of the Secretariat in the Fort St. George campus on Friday, were removed on Saturday.

Sources said they were removed following instructions from the Chief Minister’s Office. It was at this spot a banner with the portrait of former Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa was displayed during the erstwhile AIADMK regime until the model code of conduct kicked in soon after the Assembly polls were announced.

The portraits were removed on Saturday on orders from the Chief Minister’s Office.
