Lucknow: The Election Commission of India on Monday issued showcause notice against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav for violating model code of conduct during one of his election rallies.

Akhilesh, during a rally at Gyanpur in Bhadoi on March 4, had urged voters to accept money from rival parties but vote for SP.

EC has asked Akhilesh to come up with a clarification by Tuesday evening as to why action should not be taken against him.

Akhilesh had said, “We have heard a lot of money is being distributed…keep the money but remember the cycle."

It may be mentioned that EC took action in the past against the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and Delhi Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for making similar remarks.
