Gandhidham: A local court in Kutch district, Gujarat, today issued a notice to the Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal and asked him to appear before it within ten days for alleged breach of the Model Code of Conduct during his "fact finding" tour last month.
Gandhidham Judicial Magistrate K D Prasad ordered Kejriwal to appear before the court here in connection with the violation of the election code.
The former Delhi chief minister, during his four-day "reality check" tour of Gujarat, had addressed a public gathering using a loud speaker in Rishabh corner of Gandhidham town, Kutch district, without prior permission.
The Gandhidham police on March 6 had lodged an FIR against Kejriwal and five other party workers for allegedly being in breach of the notification issued by the District Magistrate in connection with the elections.
Kejriwal and his party workers' alleged crime has also been videographed by election officers at Gandhidham town.
The Police have charged six persons including Kejriwal under section 188 of the IPC for showing disobedience to order, duly promulgated by a public servant.
