 August 25, 2018: Dealers operating petrol pumps have received a verbal advisory from state-owned oil marketing companies (OMCs) to put up pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at their retail outlets, triggering a protest.

Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) have asked the dealers to arrange the display ahead of the 2019 elections.

“They are asking us to display the picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in retail outlets and those who refuse are threatened with blocking of supplies,,” S.S. Gogi, president, Consortium of Indian Petroleum Dealers (CIPD) told The Hindu.

The instruction is being conveyed by area officers of the companies, who visit the retail outlets, according to the dealers. The suggested displays include one on the scheme to provide LPG connections to Below Poverty Line families. The dealer consortium said there was no written communication, and instructions were coming from the territory manager and sales officers of the companies.
