The Delhi High Court has decided to hear on a regular basis from August 25 former Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan`s plea against the Election Commission`s show cause notice to him for allegedly not filing correct poll expenses.
Former Maharashtra chief minister and Congress leader Ashok Chavan may be disqualified as Nanded MP after the Election Commission found him guilty of fudging his poll expenses during state elections in 2009.
Under attack over the media blitz, Narendra Modi has said he is ready to face any probe by any government agency into Congress allegations that a whopping Rs 10,000 crore was being spent on poll publicity and offered to write to the Election Commission himself in this regard.
Keeping clear of the controversy around BJP leader Gopinath Munde who admitted he had spent Rs 8 crore for his poll campaign in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, Rajnath Singh said it was a matter between him and the poll panel.
The Election Commission has
sought an explanation from sitting MP and former Jharkhand
Chief Minister Madhu Koda for alleged discrepancies in poll
expenses incurred by him during the 2009 General Elections.
