The Election Commission on Sunday issued notice to Home Minister P Chidambaram and sought his reply by Monday for allegedly offering poll sops during a visit to Rajasthan for a security review meeting.

The notice was issued following a complaint filed by the BJP which alleged that Chidambaram, during his visit to the state in the last week of March, had taken up electoral issues.

The complaint said the Home Minister talked about granting citizenship to displaced Hindus from Pakistan and additional facilities for passengers travelling by Thar Express.

The three-member Commission, headed by N Gopalaswami, asked Chidambaram to reply to the notice by Monday 5 pm.
