Cong. workers warned against violating ethics code

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Warning against violation of the guidelines on the code of ethics and austerity issued by the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, the Ethics Committee has asked all the party workers and leaders to come out with their annual assessments and valuation reports at the earliest and comply with the directives issued by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The Ethics Committee that met under its chairman Bansi Lal Mehta expressed satisfaction over the compliance of its directive by the Congressmen to remove red lights from atop their vehicles but expressed concern over the misuse of photographs of senior leaders by party leaders at various levels in the Capital and asked them to fall in line, failing which they would be forced to bring the matter to the notice of the DPCC president for further action. Mr. Mehta said the Ethics Committee's recommendations were final and any attempts to undermine them would result in strict action.

Expressing serious concern over misuse of photographs of senior party leaders by the party cadres in hoardings and boards put up across the Capital, Mr. Mehta said it has been often found that some partymen have been pasting very small photographs of the senior leaders including Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, while using huge photographs of themselves in those hoardings. This was completely unacceptable and said all the members of the Ethics Committee have been asked to take care of each district to ensure no such violation takes place.

He also urged all partymen to submit their returns to the DPCC president for scrutiny and submission of the party high command.
