Mamata’s reactions to show-cause notice under EC scanner

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.

Appearing unmoved, Banerjee said she stood by whatever she had said and lashed out against the poll panel while addressing a rally in Murarai of Birbhum district.
