Explain Central Forces Remark, Election Commission Asks Mamata Banerjee

New Delhi:

Mamata Banerjee was asked today to explain by tomorrow her comments allegedly telling people to "gherao" central security forces, in the second notice to her in two days by the Election Commission.

The Bengal Chief Minister was asked to reply by 11 am tomorrow on her speech, which, the election body said, violated several sections of the model code as well as the law.

In a rally on March 28, Ms Banerjee had reportedly questioned "who gave central forces the power to threaten women without allowing them to cast their votes".
