EC rap on tax sops

POLL PITCH

New Delhi, April 20 (PTI): The Election Commission has sought withdrawal of tax exemption benefits to ten political parties from the Central Board of Direct Taxes as they failed to submit their mandatory expenditure contribution reports on time to the poll body.

The EC has asked the CBDT to take action against the defaulting parties under provisions of Section 29C (declaration of donation received by the political parties) of the Representation of the People Act.

Quota plan

Firozabad (PTI): Mulayam Singh Yadav has said that if voted to power, his party would amend the Constitution to bring in reservation for Muslims. He added that the Samajwadi Party alone could prevent Narendra Modi from becoming Prime Minister. He said the BJP would never be able to win 272 seats to the Lok Sabha.
