A banner bearing the photograph of Congress Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi at a series of meetings chaired by the Deputy Commissioner here has raised eyebrows.

Deputy Commissioner Arvind Pal Singh Sandhu conducted the meetings with officials over Covid-19, stubble-burning, student issues and free tool kits for the youth at his office on Friday.

A ‘Ghar-ghar rozgar’ banner bearing the photographs of Gandhi and Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh was seen in the background at the meetings.

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal condemned the display of Gandhi’s photograph at government meetings. “I strongly condemned this as it is against the Constitution. Rahul Gandhi doesn’t hold a constitutional post,” Badal said during a visit to the district today.

On his part, DC Sandhu said similar banners were released by the government in each district and the meetings were conducted regarding the welfare schemes for the people.
