March 26, 2019
NEW DELHI: After Air India, GoAir has now withdrawn its boarding pass showing the photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. The passes also give details about the Vibrant Gujarat Summit held last January.

GoAir explained that it was by mistake that its staff in Srinagar used the stock of Vibrant Gujarat leftover papers. Now that it has taken note of the election code of conduct.

"GoAir's Srinagar Airport team inadvertently utilized unused stock of Vibrant Gujarat related paper which took place in January 18-20, 2019 for issuing boarding passes at the said airport. It was unintentional. Taking cue from the Election Code of Conduct we have instructed our airport teams to stop utilizing this type of paper with immediate effect," the spokesperson said in a statement.

Earlier, on Monday, Air India also said, "Air India has decided to roll back the boarding passes of Vibrant Gujarat which had photos of the Prime Minister and the Gujarat Chief Minister."

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah had tweeted that GoAir was issuing boarding pass with the PM's photo on it.

Trinamool had a similar complaint about the railways. The Railways was later forced to withdraw tickets carrying photos of the Prime Minister.
