Chennai, Apr 7: The Election Commission has issued notices to AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa and her ally DMDK chief actor Vijayakant for their alleged personal attacks against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi and his family members in their campaign speeches, officials said today.
In the notice, the EC has asked both the leaders to furnish their replies by 5 PM today, they said.
The EC's notice came in the wake of a recent compliant by members of DMK poll committee who alleged that both Jayalalithaa and Vijayakant were making personal attacks targeting Karunanidhi and his family members in their poll campaign for the April 13 Assembly elections.
With just six days to go for polls, the campaign has reached feverish pitch with both DMK and AIADMK-led fronts playing for high stakes in one of the fierce poll battles ever. PTI
