No Deendayal Upadhyaya’s Photo In Letter Pads


The Rajasthan government stated order on Wednesday to withdraw a December 2017 circular, in which the previous BJP government in the state had directed every department, boards, corporations and self-governance organizations to put a picture of Deendayal Upadhyay as a logo in their letter pads.

The newly-chosen Congress government in the state, in its first cabinet meeting last week, had decided to remove the picture of Upadhyay from the letter pads and the state printing and stationery department issued the orders to that effect on Wednesday. “The decision has been taken by the cabinet to replace the photo of Deendayal Upadhyay,” Ravi Shankar Srivastava, Additional Chief Secretary of the department, said in the order.

In compliance with the decision of the cabinet, he further stated to withdraw the December 11, 2017 circular, in which the previous government led by Vasundhara Raje had issued the directions to insert the picture of Upadhyay, an RSS ideologue and a co-founder of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), in the letter pads.
