Union minister Babul Supriyo has replied to the show cause notice slapped on him by the Election Commission for releasing the BJP's campaign song without obtaining permission from it, an official said on Friday.
Additional Chief Electoral Officer Sanjay Basu said: "We have received a reply from him and it is under consideration."
The Election Commission on Tuesday had slapped a show cause notice on Supriyo for not seeking permission before releasing a video of his Bharatiya Janata Party's campaign song for Bengal on the social media.
Basu also said an amount of over Rs 70.31 lakh has been seized by the police and the EC from various parts of the state since the announcement of the elections.
