Congress Party Releasing its Manifesto at Congress Bhavan
Bhubaneswar: The State Election Commission (SEC) on Tuesday has served a show cause notice to Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Niranjan Patnaik over party’s manifesto.

It is noteworthy to mention that, the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD)on Sunday had urged the SEC to ban the manifesto published by the Congress for the coming Panchayat polls as the mainfesto contained serious charges of corruptions levelled against 14 Ministers of BJD, including Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

The Opposition Congress on the other hand on Monday had announced that it will reply to the commission if a notice is issued by the SEC for publishing the manifesto.
