EC notice  to Parrikar
The Election Commission issued notice to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for violating the Model Code of Conduct while campaigning for BJP candidates in poll-bound Goa.

The poll panel noted that the defence minister was accused of “deliberately and intentionally” instigating the public to take bribe for voting and thereby abetting the offence of bribery during the electoral process by making a statement at a “corner meeting” at Chimbel in Goa on January 29.

The EC noted that it had received a complaint from the Goa Forward Party as well as a report from District Election Officer of North Goa about the comments made by the defence minister.
