BJP slams media for ‘unsolicited’ Advani ads

NEW DELHI:India’s main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday criticised Pakistani media portals for displaying “unsolicited” advertisements with its prime ministerial candidate LK Advani’s photographs asking for votes.

BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad, without knowing the advertisements were part of an automatic display on Google, asked the Pakistani media to ‘set your own house in order’ saying the party would win without their support. Prasad said the BJP had not commissioned any advertisement to the Pakistani media. “Such advertisements are unsolicited and we don’t need their (Pakistani media) support for our campaign,” he said. “Pakistani newspapers should be more concerned with their own fate. They must count the time when Taliban take over their offices in Islamabad and Lahore rather than showing concern for us,” he added. Advani’s photographs feature in massive ads in two leading Pakistani media portals.
