Maharashtra Election Commission on Wednesday said the political parties could publish advertisements in newspapers even as the campaigning for Thursday's civic polls concluded on Tuesday evening.

Ten municipal corporations, including Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), will go to polls on Thursday.

"After the end of the campaign, personal interviews of political leaders cannot be printed or aired in newspapers and news channels," a press statement issued by the State Election Commission said.

It also said that the news channels can, however, broadcast news on the poll campaign provided they do not show the speeches made by politicians during the election rallies.

"Analysis of opinion or exit polls cannot be shown," the statement read, adding the group discussion of leaders from various political parties will not be allowed on electronic channels.
