NEW DELHI, March 29 - Air India today was again found to be using boarding passes carrying photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, days after the national carrier decided to roll back such passes amid criticism over alleged poll code violation.

On Friday evening, a passenger who took an Air India flight from Madurai tweeted a picture of his boarding pass having photos of Modi and Rupani in an advertisement for the Vibrant Gujarat summit held in January.

�Air India had issued notice on March 25 to all domestic stations to discontinue usage of boarding cards with Vibrant Gujarat advertisement on reverse with immediate effect. Today�s incident is apparently a human error. A show-cause notice for this error has been issued to the airport manager of the AI at Madurai,� an airline spokesman said.

�Today the AI management has reiterated its earlier instructions and asked for confirmation from all stations regarding discontinuation of these boarding cards,� he said. � PTI
