New Delhi: Congress is believed to have
served a show cause notice on senior party MLA and Deputy
Speaker of Delhi Assembly Amrish Singh Gautam for his alleged
involvement in anti-party activities.

Congress sources said Gautam has been told to reply to
the show cause notice within seven days.

A close relative of Gautam has been contesting the
municipal polls in Kundli as an independent candidate against
Congress` official nominee.

"Action would be taken against Gautam if he fails to
reply to the show cause notice satisfactorily," the sources
said.

Repeated attempts to elicit a comment from Gautam did not
fructify.
