NEW DELHI, April 9 - The Election Commission has called the Revenue Secretary and chairman, Central Board of Direct Taxes on Tuesday to discuss ongoing income tax raids.

Revenue Secretary AB Pandey and CBDT chairman PC Mody have been called to explain the raids amid allegations by the Congress that the ruling BJP was using enforcement agencies to target it during the poll season.

The EC had on Sunday �strongly advised� the Finance Ministry that any action by its enforcement agencies during election time should be �neutral� and �non-discriminatory� and officials of the poll panel should be kept in loop about such actions.

The EC�s advice had come against the backdrop of Income Tax department�s raids in Madhya Pradesh on Sunday and in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in the recent past on politicians and people connected to them.

Since the Model Code Conduct came into force on March 10, the I-T department has carried out several raids on political leaders and their associates which the opposition has dubbed a misuse of central agencies during poll season. � PTI
