New Delhi: As the model code of conduct came into force in the five poll bound states on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photograph has been taken off from the vaccine certificates in the states where elections will be held next month.

The Union Health Ministry has applied necessary filters on the Co-WIN platform to exclude Modi’s photo from the vaccine certificate, PTI reported citing its sources.

The filters were applied on Saturday night soon after the poll schedule was announced, PTI reported.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Saturday announced the dates for assembly elections due in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa. The elections will be held between February 10 and March 7 while the counting of votes will take place on March 10.

Soon after the announcement of the election dates for Assembly elections, the model code of conduct for governments, candidates and political parties came into force and will stay in effect till the elections are completed.

While announcing the schedule for the upcoming elections, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra on Saturday said, “All election officials and employees will be considered under the ambit of frontline workers and all eligible officers will be vaccinated against COVID-19 with precautionary dose.”
