EC notice to Mamata for alleged appeal to voters along communal lines during poll rally

The Election Commission issued a notice to West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday for allegedly making an appeal to voters along communal lines during campaigning in Hooghly.

She has been asked to respond to the notice within the next 48 hours.

The notice said the poll panel  had received a complaint from a BJP delegation  alleging that on April 3, Banerjee appealed to the Muslim voters not to let their votes be split among different political parties during the election rally at Tarakeshwar in Hooghly.

The EC said it found her speech violating the provisions of the Representation of the People Act and the model code.
