Modi’s picture in full page Jio ads sparks controversy, Twitter goes crazy

New Delhi: The picture of PM Narendra Modi in full page Reliance Jio advertisements on the launch of its telecom service kicked up a controversy with Opposition parties taking jibes at him.

The Congress party said that if the telecom company has failed to take permission from the Prime Minister Office for using his photograph, Modi should take action against Reliance Jio .


How can the chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal stay behind. Kejriwal mockingly dubbed Modi as “Mr Reliance” on Tweeter and accused him of openly endorsing its latest Jio services whose launch was announced by business magnate Mukesh Ambani.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal said that Modiji you keep modelling for Reliance ads. Labourers across the country will teach you a lesson in 2019. PM as Mr Reliance. Any more proof required to prove that Modiji is in the pocket of Ambani. PM of India openly endorses Reliance product.

Through its ads, Reliance dedicated the Jio 4G service to the flagship Digital India project of Modi government. Full-page “Joi: Digital Life” jacket advertisements were published with a photograph of the Prime Minister, dressed in a blue jacket.

Here are some tweets on this controversy:
