Kolkata, April 15 (IANS) The Election Commission is examining speeches made by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as reactions to the show-cause notice issued by the poll panel, an official said here on Friday.

“We have sent CDs of speeches made by Banerjee in reaction to the show-cause,” additional chief Electoral officer Dibyendu Sarkar told the media here.

Banerjee on Thursday went all guns blazing against the Commission which show-caused her for violation of the model code of conduct.

Barely minutes after Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi informed the media on Thursday about issuance of a show-cause notice to Banerjee over her announcement of making Asansol a district and other utterances, the Trinamool supremo thundered “people will show-cause the commission” on May 19 when results of the assembly polls will be declared.
