"SHO, Geeta Colony, complained that Sandeep Dikshit, MP from East Delhi parliamentary constituency, organised a Pada Yatra on March 6 at 2.30PM along with around 100 supporters in his constituency area without having any permission from returning officer," the notice read.
The flying squad of the area has given its report along with the CD covering the whole event which at prima facia shows that Dikshit has violated the Model Code of Conduct.
The RO has directed Dikshit to appear before her along with the requisite reply to explain violation of the model code", failing which it will be construed that he has nothing to say in this regard and legal action as per law will be initiated without any further correspondence."
