A delegation comprising of KC Tyagi (JD-U), RPN Singh (Congress), Manoj Jha (RJD) along with eminent lawyer KTS Tulsi submitted a memorandum to the Chief Election Commissioner giving details of such posters and banners carrying the pictures of BJP leaders and its election symbol at the airport.

"The delegation told the Election Commission that the airports and railways stations have been used by the ruling party at the Centre for its propaganda in the state where assembly polls are underway,” Congress leader RPN Singh said.
He cited the Commission told them that no permission has been granted to put up the hoardings at government buildings including airports or railway stations. In their letter to the EC, the delegation said that the 'flagrant violation' could not have escaped the Commission's notice on its recent Patna visit as over a dozen banners are on display inside the airport with pictures of PM Modi, Shah and lotus election symbol of BJP.
"Public places belonging to the government cannot be allowed to be used and worse monopolised by the party in power," they said.

The leaders also drew the attention of the EC to its earlier order when in 2012 UP elections, giant statues of elephants (election symbol of BSP) were covered when model code of conduct was in force in the state.
