The Election Commission on Thursday granted BJP leader Gopinath Munde 14 days to reply to its showcause notice on disqualification over his poll expense remark. Mr. Munde had sought four more weeks’ time along with reports of the returning officer on expenditure incurred by him during 2009 parliamentary poll. The EC had served a notice on Mr. Munde on June 29, asking him why he should not be disqualified for “suppressing and undervaluing” his poll campaign expenditure. — PTI
