EC issues notice to Priyanka Gandhi over remarks on Modi

The Election Commission on Thursday served a show-cause notice to senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra over an alleged poll code violation during her speech in Rajasthan’s Dausa.

The commission has asked Priyanka Gandhi to respond to the notice by 5pm on October 30.

Priyanka Gandhi, the BJP noted in its submission, told a public meeting in Dausa on October 20 that she saw it on TV that when an envelope of donation made by Modi at a temple was opened, it carried only 21.

Gandhi said, “I recently saw something on TV. I don’t know if it is true or not. PM Modi went to the Devnarayan temple and submitted an envelope in the donation box. People were wondering what it contained, but when it was opened 21 came out of it.”
