Deen Dayal Upadhaya pic must on Raj govt ads


Jaipur, July 26 : No government advertisement in Rajasthan can now come without the picture of Deen Dayal Upadhaya, the erstwhile leader and founder of Jan Sangh.
The Directorate of Information and Public Relations has issued orders to all government departments, boards, corporations, authorities, and autonomous bodies to ensure the use of a specific logo for such advertisements. The said logo will have a picture of Upadhyay along with a mention of his centenary year, says the letter issued by DIPR Secretary.
“The year is being celebrated as the centenary year of the great thinker, philosopher and litterateur Deen Dayal Upadhyay,” reads the order and directs the officials concerned to ensure that the logo is used on all its advertisements.
Rajasthan has a special connection with Deen Dayal as his native village and birthplace Dhankya is around 40 km from Jaipur. And it has been adopted by state Information and Broadcasting minister Rajyavardhan Rathore under Adarsh Gram Yojana.
