EC notice to Sriprakash Jaiswal for President’s Rule comments

The Election Commission on Friday slapped a show cause notice to Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal. “The commission is, prima facie, satisfied that Shri Sri Prakash Jaiswal, by making the aforesaid uncalled for statement has attempted to threaten the voters of districts going for poll in 6th and 7th phases either to vote for his party i.e. INC, or face imposition of President Rule in Uttar Pradesh and has thus violated the aforesaid provisions of the Model Code of Conduct,” the poll panel notice served on him said.

The commission asked the Coal Minister to explain his position on the matter by 2 pm on Monday, failing which it will decide the matter without giving any further opportunity to him.
