EC issues show cause notice to Sidhu

In fresh trouble for Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, the Election Commission on Friday issued a fresh show cause notice to him for violating the model code of conduct. Sidhu had allegedly passed disparaging remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The poll panel has given him a day to reply to the notice. 

The poll panel had received a complaint from the BJP that Sidhu, during a rally in Madhya Pradesh on April 29, had made disparaging comments about PM Modi.
