Posted on: 13-03-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

Bollywood star and Congress MP Govinda and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav were served show cause notice by the Election Commission for distributing money during Holi festivities.

The Election Commission on Thursday slapped a notice on Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav for alleged distribution of cash by his party workers at a Holi function at Saifai in Etawah district, Uttar Pradesh. Video footage of some people distributing money at a "Holi Milan" programme on Wednesday was aired by some news channels but the SP chief denied that he had distributed any money and claimed it was a tradition to "reward" those who perform during Holi festivities.

Meanwhile complaints against actor turned politician Govinda took note for distributing cash outside his Juhu residence on Wednesday during Holi, state Chief Electoral Officer Debashish Chakrabarty has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
Controversy has dogged Govinda's political carrier. During the 2004 parliamentary elections, the BJP had accused the actor of violating the code of conduct for using pictures of national personalities and saints on his campaign rath.
