• Media Law question

Can we use Modi's image along with his actual quotes from news cuttings  in a press advertising for a real estate project in a city thats Dream City of Modi- Dholera Gujrat?
We will either use an illustration of commercially free to use image.

No the image of Modi cannot be used without taking permission from Modiji. It would infringe his privacy.
If the cuttings are speaking about your project, the same can be used and if the same are stated in general then it cannot be used in the advertisement as well. If by way of advertisement, a wrong impression is given to the public, the same is not permissible.
