New Delhi, Dec 9 (ANI): The three-member Election Commission on Sunday issued notice against Congress President Sonia Gandhi for her “merchants of deaths” remark.
Congress leader Digvijay Singh has also been issued a notice by the Commission for his alleged “Hindu terrorism” remark.
Both leaders have been asked to submit their reply by Tuesday.
The Commission, which is currently looking into the reply filed by Narendra Modi for justifying the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, had received complaints from the BJP to take action against the Congress leaders.
Modi in his reply had questioned the Commission for not taking action against Congress president, and had said that Sonia’s remark provoked him to utter words about Sheikh. (ANI)
