New Delhi: The Election Commission Tuesday issued a third notice to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal asking him to "desist" from making comments on bribing of voters by political parties and warned of strict action in the event of any violation.

The notice was issued over Kejriwal's comments that people from both the BJP and the Congress would offer money to voters which they should not refuse. The AAP asked electors to, however, cast their vote in favour of the Aam Aadmi Party.

The poll panel had earlier issued notice to the Aam Aadmi Party leader Jan 18 and Jan 23 on the same issue.

Kejriwal had given an undertaking to the Election Commission that he would not violate the model code of conduct further with such comments.

Holding that the comments violated the model code, the poll panel directed Kejriwal from making such utterances in all forms of election campaigns from 7 p.m. Tuesday.

"You are hereby warned that the commission shall be constrained to take stern action against you in the event of any further violation," the notice said.
