Congress president Rahul Gandhi's sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who has jumped into politics lately, needs to reply to the notice in three days.

The NCPCR also wrote to Election Commission of India (ECI) over children being used in campaigning for political parties.

In its complaint, the NCPCR objected to the use of children in the election campaign. The NCPCR also said that the Bombay High Court had ruled in an order on August 4, 2014, that children should not be included in the election campaign.

The High Court had also asked the Election Commission to issue instructions to all political parties in this regard. Following the order, the Election Commission had directed all political parties on February 21, 2017, to not include children in the election campaign.
