Election Commission on Wednesday in New Delhi  directed Union Minister Vayalar Ravi to pay for the government facilities availed by him during campaigning for bye-elections to Cannanore, Ernakulam and Allettey Assembly seats in Kerala.

The Commission's order came after it wrote to Ravi seeking his response for the alleged violation of Model Code of Conduct.
