New Delhi: The Congress Tuesday moved the Election Commission against the RSS, yoga guru Ramdev and Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, saying they have been conducting political activities.


It also urged the panel to keep a close tab on any campaign-related issue.

In a complaint to the poll panel, K. C. Mittal, secretary of Congress' legal and human rights department said that persons and organisations other than BJP "namely, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Ramdev and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar have been conducting political activities without being registered as a political party".

The complaint said that the RSS claims to be a social and cultural organisation and also referred to reports about political message at yoga camps held by Ramdev in the capital.
