EC notice to Lalu’s party
The Election Commission has served show cause notice on Rashtriya Janata Dal, asking why action should not be taken against it for having failed to submit the annual audit report for 2014-15. The electoral body said it had sent repeated reminders seeking the audit report that was supposed to be filed by October 2015.
The Commission instructed the party to send its representation in writing along with the annual audit report, giving detailed reasons for the default, within 20 days from the date of receipt of the notice.
The Commission has also sent a similar show cause notice to the United Democratic Party.
