UP Elections 2012 : EC issues notice to Khurshid’s wife over Muslim quota

The Election Commission on Tuesday issued a notice to Law Minister Salman Khurshid’s wife Louise Khurshid, who is a Congress candidate, for poll code violation.

The notice was served after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) complained about the promise of Muslim quota being made by the Congress.

Khurshid had promised 9 per cent sub-quota for backward Muslims within 27 per cent OBC quota in Uttar Pradesh if it wins the state assembly elections.

Earlier, the law minister had dismissed the complaint by the BJP, saying there was no law against promising more quotas.
