Shiromani Akali Dal chief Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday asked the Election Commission to use the same yardstick against Sonia Gandhi as when it disqualified Samajwadi Party member Jaya Bachchan from the Rajya Sabha.

"Gandhi, like Jaya Bachchan is holding an office of profit and continues to be the member of the Lok Sabha," the former Punjab Chief Minister told a news conference in Ludhiana.

He asked the EC to disqualify Sonia Gandhi also as "no person is above law whosoever he or she may be".
