"We have removed pictures of Chief Minister from existing 1031 helpline advertisements. The new poster features hand wearing handcuffs highlight helpline's achievement to arrest 35 and suspend 152 officials," the official said.

The state government is also planning to use images of Mahatma Gandhi or Bhagat Singh in these ads, a senior government official said. Observing that Kejriwal had a mass connect, a senior official said it would now be difficult to promote the government's policies and schemes without a prominent face and so the images of national heroes will be used.

AAP government had also released a 39-second long TV commercial last week in which Kejriwal spoke about how his government was able to pay higher compensation to rain-hit farmers, by keeping a check on corruption.
The Supreme Court had recently banned publication of government ads with photos of leaders except those of the President, Prime Minister or Chief Justice of India.
