Union minister Arjun Ram Meghwal Monday received a notice from the district election office for sending bulk SMSs during election campaign without taking prior permission.
The notice was issued by District Election Officer Kumar Pal Gautam, officials said.
The Minister of State in the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation has been asked to reply within 24 hours.
The notice stated that bulk SMS service used during election campaigning comes under pre-certification ambit, so permission has to be taken from the poll body's monitoring committee.
